The latest massacre is the one at Houla where some 90 Syrians were killed, including 32 children as young as under the age of 10.
Altogether some 9,000-10,000 Syrians have been killed since the Syrian people's uprising more than a year ago
Like I had said earlier, Assad is not serious about the peace plan. He is only interested to buy time for himself and his regime. But like I had also asked, what time is he buying for?
He has passed the Rubicon and checked into Hotel California and there is no checking out for him.
However, if America is not fully committed to see Assad out by taking stronger action other than imposing sanctions on the Assad regime, and the situation in Syria gets worse and it surely will, terrorist organisations like Al Qaeda would just love it and exploit the situation .
One senior Free Syrian Army colonel was quoted by BBC to have said
I tell the UN and the UN Security Council, the Syrian people can't take it anymore. Our children killed; our women raped; our houses destroyed. If no one helps us, we will turn to the devil himself
But what about China and Russia? It seems that every time the international community wants a universal consensus on dealing with the Assad regime, these two play the devil's advocate.
