As I write this, the Syrian city of Homs is being brutally assaulted by government forces, which are reportedly repressing more demonstrations in at least a dozen cities throughout the country. The regime’s cruelty is boundless, as even young children are targeted. The following slideshow gives just a small, mostly atmospheric glimpse into this bloody crackdown.
Incredibly, the beleaguered citizens are still unrelenting in their protests. Were I in their position, I honestly don’t know if I would have ever kept it going at this point. Human will is a remarkable thing.
