Horrific videos and pictures have come out of Syria today on a Sectarian massacre in Homs, especially of slaughtered children (why does the regime hate children? Remember this revolution started with the torture of young boys in Der'a). You can find videos here and here (very graphic nature). It is another ominous sign of where things are heading with more blood spilled; Joshua Landis, long criticized for being close to the Syrian regime, today wrote an article, expecting the end of the regime after a long, bloody and Sectarian war that will last well into next year.
(Reuters) - Militiamen loyal to President Bashar al-Assad killed 14 members of a Sunni family in the city of Homs on Thursday in one of the grizzliest sectarian attacks in the ten-month uprising raging in the Alawite-dominated country, activists and residents said.
Eight children, aged eight months to nine years old were among 14 Bahader family members shot or hacked to death in a building in the mixed Karm al-Zeitoun neighborhood of Homs, 140-km (88 miles) north of Damascus, they said.
The militiamen, known as 'shabbiha', entered the district after loyalist forces fired heavy mortar rounds on the area, killing another 16 people, residents and activists in the city told Reuters by phone.
