PARIS (AP) — Governments around the world expelled Syrian ambassadors and diplomats Tuesday, an unusual, coordinated blow to Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime following a gruesome massacre that the United Nations said involved close-range shootings of scores of children and parents in their homes.
The United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands took action Tuesday against Syrian diplomats. Britain's foreign secretary said the countries involved in Tuesday's expulsions would also push for tougher sanctions against Syria.
BEIRUT (AP) — The U.N.'s human rights office said Tuesday that most of the 108 victims of a massacre in Syria last week were shot at close range, some of them women, children and entire families gunned down in their own homes.

No war. Not this year. Syria could make potty on the White House lawn and Obama would not make war.
It's an election year.
Oh, the war drums will sound, the politicians will froth at the mouth, pundits will rend their clothes and gnash their teeth in anguish. . . . . . . . .
But no war. Obama wants to get re-elected. He would suffer the lives of thousands, if it would gain him another 4 years.
Just my humble opinion. . . . . . .
Syria's military figures who are responsible for human rights abuses may be banned from visiting the UK during the Olympics, the country's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said on Sunday, BBC News reported.
One, ten, a thousand, a million? Have we mankind lost our minds and conscience as well, if there is even such a thing as 'acceptable levels of killing own citizens' ????

There are reports that there have already been 9000+ killed in the last fourteen months. I don't know why it would take until now for the world to do something. I don't agree with the U.S. getting involved the way they most likely get involved (with an all out occupation), but I do agree that something needs to be done. TPTB seem to want WWIII, and seem to be willing to do anything to make that happen. If Syria is a stepping stone, then they will get what they want.

It is amazing how these things that were planned years ago and even though it is taking longer than originally planned, are being achieved in front of our eyes.
