Unarmed UN observers get a taste of life in Homs, under Al-Assad's Alawite tyranny: April 22nd, '12
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

No sooner than arriving in Homs, the dangerously unarmed UN observers get a taste of the terrorism the citizens of Homs have been living under for the past year.

The tyrant and his gang will probably ensure they do not murder any UN staff, but they have provided the UN with an indication of the conditions the Sunni Arab citizens of Homs have been living under.

  • If your only choice is Islamic tyranny, I suspect Alawite tyranny is far, far, far, preferable to Sunni tyranny. For examples of Sunni tyranny, see Taliban-controlled Aghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and TTP-controlled Pakistan. Truly (and literally) stone-age.

    As far as I can tell, it is an open question as to whether the FSA is better than Assad thugs. On the whole, I'd like to see Assad go and I'll take my chances with the FSA.

      Assad is the current domino as actions in africa go under the radar.

      I agree with your first half, not your second. Syria was very peaceful in the past couple of decades. The problems now are both boring and worrying. A major factor is rise in food prices across the middle-east driven by the Green demand for world crops for fuel. That creates unhappy people. The second factor is the Islamists taking avery advantage they can.

      Yes Syria was 'peaceful' for many years after Hafez murdered 15000 Syrians in Hama back in 1982.
      The hunger for to live as free men cannot be kept in check for ever though.

      And why are they unfree? They had free education beyond University level, free Health Care, State mandated tolerance of religious minorities, and State support for Women's rights.

      Bashar has now organised a change in the Constitution that was voted on by the people to change the Baath party from Constitutionally dominanant to merely a player.

      The upcoming elections are actually very important. The terrorist and Gulf-State interference is a final last-gasp attempt to stop peacef More..

  • As far as I followed it is like this: Islamists try to revolt againts Assad.
    And I really hope they fail.

  • Comment of user 'etherealspectre' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • The only shooting going on as the locals firing in the air. Or possibly some AQ firing a few rounds to ginger up the occasion.

    At least this is not totally fake like yesterday (not you Mr Creosote) where the shots were dubbed in. I managed to get deleted and eventually the entire fake post was deleted.

  • I wonder how much these fools are getting paid to be targets for both sides of the jihad?
    I wonder if they even speak the local language.

      Yup orange shirt, kakhi pants and colored sleeves. He's running across with an AK47 in his arms.

      I don't care what I see these days. Those are rebels cracking off shots, trying to scare people away.

  • At 1:01 you can clearly see a Syrian security personnel. Why would Assad have his soldiers fire on crowds of civilians and UN observers? Clearly, he must be insane.....
