“Reformer” Assad Sends in Army & Fires on Freedom Protesters

On Sunday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the United States would would not intervene in Syria because President Assad was a “reformer.” Of course, the evidence that the Syrian dictator is a reformer is slim to none.

Later on Sunday President Assad sent his army into Latakio to quell the freedom protests. And today the regime opened fire on the protesters in Darwa.

So much for reform.

Reuters reported:

Syrian security forces opened fire on hundreds of demonstrators chanting against emergency laws in the southern city of Deraa on Monday, a witness said.

The demonstrators had converged on a main square in the city, chanting “We want dignity and freedom” and “No to emergency laws,” the witness said.

Two Reuters journalists are reported missing in Syria
