Today´s death toll:
In Syria, activists report that at least 47 people were killed in an attack by government militia in Homs
Syria´s criminal dictator Bashar al-Assad is defying international pressure to stop killing civilians. Assad is able to continue his crimes against humanity because of protection offered by other criminal dictators and authoritarians - Russia´s Vladimir Putin and China´s communist leadership.
The tradition of protecting each other, as long as there is no competition within each other´s sphere of influence, is wellknown in criminal circles all over the world.
It does not matter how well dressed they all are in their tailor made business suits - they still are nothing but thugs.
