More mayhem Death and destruction

A quick update on Syria where the indiscriminate killing continues. Men women and children are being fired upon by the military with tank guns and snipers on roof tops. No one dare venture into the streets during the day at risk of life or limb. I see no end in sight other than some type of intervention but with Russia and China providing back up for a repressive regime that is not likely to happen any time soon. What our spy agencies can do to alleviate the situation covertly is another question. With such a closed society it would be no easy task to try and infiltrate such a situation.

Had hoped to embed this BBC video at the link but forgot how.

There may be too many people in that country anyway so I'm all for both sides killing each other.

Those journalists should have dug some holes, yes?

Well, maybe they thought they were at a picnic.

I'm waiting for all the people who bitched and moaned about Obama's decision to help Libya's rebels to start complaining about Obama's callous unwillingness to send the bombers over and the troops in to help Syria's rebels.

Or maybe not. Come to think of it, Syria's not a major oil-producing country.

It doesn't appear to me that they have a hell of a lot to base an economy on, especially if there are too many of them.

Oh hell, it's just a bunch of Muslim monkeys fucking around and we should stay out of it.
