Syria Crisis: Dramatic Footage Reveals Scale Of Devastation In Homs As Tank Columns Roll
Dramatic footage of rocket attacks and tank assaults in the town of Homs in Syria have emerged as activists reported the heaviest bombardment of civilian areas since the start of anti-government protests.
Videos posted to YouTube by the British-born Syrian activist Danny Adbul Daymen appear to show a blasted landscape of civilian and residential buildings under apparently constant fire from rockets.
In one clip dated 8 February, which shows fire and smoke pouring from buildings, Daymen says:
“This is Homs, Baba Amr, you can see over there another rocket landed on one of the civilian’s houses, this has been going on all day, since 5am.
This is beyond barbaric, and nothing can be done.
Ask all knowing Nadin and FearLess Leader.May the FORCE be with you!

The footage I saw on the news from Syria was truly frightening. Constant gunfire, collapsing buildings, shooting anyone who dares to step out of his house. It was worse than Detroit on the night the Pistons won their first championship in 1989, and that is saying something.
I don't really see where US involvement could do much good in this situation. There is not a clear division between civilian and enemy populations in an urban setting like I saw on the news. Short of sending in Seal Team 6 to assassinate Assad, which would be pointless, there's not much anyone can do for the Syrians except pray.

I have a Bosnian friend who was a teenager in Sarajevo during the siege. She said that they would often wonder why the Americans had not saved them yet. And even after doing so, her brother hates us to this day.

To this day I wondered why we bothered getting involved with a war that threatened our interests not a bit. When the stinking Europeans should of handled it. I have a very close friend that came back from that shit hole with sever PTSD issues, some of the shit he had seen screwed him up. Funny lots of people on the left dont mind us getting involved in wars like that but if we get in one for our on interests they pitch a fit.

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

I don't oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by...armchair, weekend warriors...to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.
What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like...to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income, to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression.
That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.
