If they are capable of doing this to their own people, just imagine what they would do to their enemies.
This is why Israel needs to remain strong.

Noted. There is no doubt about it. Assad must go as soon as possible.

No poking holes in people with power-drills? (Apparently standard practice for Iraqi militias.) Sadly, the torture described is actually better than I expected.

How much longer will it take the delegates in the UN to denounce the US and China for letting this horror continue?

I just don't understand... how can people do this to one another? How can the world still be so plagued with these horrifying atrocities? When will we ever be able to see ourselves as ONE humanity, in which we can all flourish and grow together toward a higher level of beingness, centered in the energy of LOVE. This saddens me deeply. My heart goes out to the people of Syria who are taking up arms for their freedom... especially today, on the day that we celebrate ours.

They do a great job - of driving the rest of us away from Islam! Sit on it, Assad!
