Carnage in Homs Syria as Tanks open Fire: Video


www.reuters.com

(Reuters) - Terrified residents cowered in their homes on Monday in Syria's Homs, as army tanks fired shells, machineguns and mortars into their neighborhoods, and amateur video filmed by anti-government activists showed carnage in a city street.

Four bodies of what appeared to be male civilians lay bloodied under fallen power lines in a narrow alleyway of the Baba Amr district, their limbs twisted, heads gashed and brains spilling out.

"What is happening is a slaughter," said Fadi, a resident near Baba Amr who spoke to Reuters on Skype. "They hit people with mortar fire."

A massacre of civilians on a great scale is taking place by a dictator that is willing to commit crimes against his own people as if he owns them.

So are these government tanks or rebel tanks, because if they are rebel tanks they will still be called government tanks. If you get my meaning.

absolutely insane, if the facts are straight about the video this is some scary/damning evidence of Assad's position, i often wonder what the reprecussions of the U.S. abusing its integrity the world over would be, and it seems when innocent people really need us were not there.

It would be small potatos for Nato to take out the heavy armour and any airforce the syrians may wish to throw at them....
The UN would have to rule on it then, and i doubt the ruskies would agree, much less a lot of others too....Perhaps Turkey will step up to the plate.....?

Wait for it.........
Can you tell by how smoothly the tank turret moves? That is most certainly a CIA operative operating that tank!!
Haven't you figured it out yet? The only blood thirsty nation on this planet is America! The rest of the planet just wants solar power and Pokemon...

I have never commented on one of these threads. My personal belief is that we have no business interfering with another Country's internal struggles. But how long can the World sit back and watch a Country slaughter their own people simply because they want change? It is the World that should step in and put a stop to this. And it is not just happening in Syria.

be carefull this could be kaka theres a lot of propaganda in particular humanitarian propaganda flying about regarding syria right now, for all we know this could have been filmed 10 years ago somewhere else other than syria ... be carefull what you believe we know we cannot trust any news outlet and that includes reuters

since they chopped out the obvious part of the staged police brutality video at occupy, reuters is as bad as fox. the bit were the fake protestor signals the cameras first to say are you ready then signals the cops to say go! then the cops flip their lids down and start pounding the protestors which were mostly if not all actors and this was put out on reuters news as real live police brutality when in actual fact it was crap and they knew it!""

reuters screwwed up big time everything they say has to be verified now or i for 1 wont beleive it .

These aren't "occupy wall street" peaceful protests. These are armed rebels trying to overthrow the government with backing from the west. I'm sure the US would do the same thing if it came down to it. Unfortunately alot of innocent people just trying to live their lives get caught up in the foolishness.

My cousin was recently chosen as a bishop in the Eastern Orthodox church, and he was supposed to have the ceremony in Syria. Due to the violence they chose a safer location, Beirut Lebanon.

When Lebanon is safer than Syria you know there is a problem.

It can't be Syrian military huh? Has to be US operatives you say?
Some wild jumping to conclusions going on in this thread.

I was expecting to see a video showing Syrian troops shooting at the people, but now I see I was wrong.

And what I find strange is that I haven't seen one video in which we can see without a doubt government troops attacking civilians; I have seen dead, wounded, destruction, smoke rising over the buildings (like in this video, and I think I have seen that some weeks ago), but for such a supposed attack on their own people, I find it strange that I haven't seen one video that shows all that violence while it happens.

That doesn't mean I think that this is some kind of fabrication, but I do find it strange.

They started off as protests but, when the military was sent in to kill them they started to defect and then it became an armed revolt. Assad does have the support of a small loyal group and Iran but, the military seems to be defecting in larger and larger numbers turning this from a crack down on protests into a civil war.
