Nearly 100 Massacred near Damascus

Blood poured like water in Syria on Sunday. Rebels claimed nearly 100 fighters were massacred. Assad’s regime in effect confirmed the report and said it “inflicted heavy losses upon terrorists.”

Nearly 100 bodies were counted by rebels in the streets of a Damascus suburb after Syrian President Bashar Assad’s army allegedly executed men, women and children.

The report was not verified, but the official Syrian SANA news agency reported, “Armed Forces units inflicted heavy losses upon terrorists in the town of Jdiadet al-Fadl in Damascus Countryside.”

At the same time, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry pledged $123 million in “non-lethal” to rebels as the Obama administration, plays it safe in what has clearly become a “lose-lose” war not only for Syria but also for the Middle East, if not the entire world.

Jamal al Golani, a member of the Revolution Leadership Council, said he counted 98 bodies in the streets. “There are almost no wounded because they were shot on the spot,” he added.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the dead included three children and six women.

Meanwhile, the West still is scratching its head over the civil war that threatens to spread to neighboring Lebanon.

It took too long for the Obama administration to understand it was backing the wrong man when then-US. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said after the beginning of the rebellion two years ago, “Assad is a reformer.”

The United States already has suffered two major diplomatic disasters in the past two years.  It backed the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who has been replaced by an equally corrupt regime that promotes fundamental Islam. In Libya, the truth still is not known about the events leading up to the brutal murder of the American ambassador.

The West realizes that the civil war in Syria is not just a struggle of the “rebels” against Assad but is prime turf for terrorist organizations, not the least of them Al Qaeda, to stake out a power base.

Kerry, who as Senate Foreign Relations committee chairman frequently shuttled back and forth Syria to “engage” Assad, cannot do much more than try not to look helpless and offer humanitarian aid. The $123 million aid, which also is for non-lethal weapons such as armored carriers and communications equipment, is double the previous amount of assistance.

His hope is that the Syrian rebels will unite and live up to their pledge made on Sunday that it rejects extremism and is committed “not to use chemical weapons.”

  7. Get the hell out of Syria, Egypt and all surrounding Islamic jihad countries and get the Muslim Brotherhood out of the highest levels of our Homeland Security. Obama you stupid stupid ridiculous turncoat of a man. You have sequestered the American people, bowed to our enemies as well as financed them. You are a clear and present danger. Our money is our money and we have to use it for our homeland. While you party with the Illuminati devil worshipers and finance evil you are becoming the most hated man on the planet.

  8. America knew that fundamentalist Islam would take over Egypt when they backed the rebellion. They knew (and know) what went down in Libya. They know what they're doing in Syria, playing the two sides against one another. And they know if Assad is ousted, fundamentalist Islam will take control of Syria and Lebanon. (Most like Hezbollah or something very much like them) The B.O. administration is not ignorant of all of this – they know and it's very calculated. But for what purpose one can only guess.
