The dead included two boys ages seven and 10, and a four-year-old girl, according to activists.

“The Syrian authorities have again responded to peaceful calls for change with bullets and batons. They must immediately halt their attacks on peaceful protesters and instead allow Syrians to gather freely as international law demands,” said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa director.

    Bashar, the world is watching you, and if they were not so sure these past few weeks, they are VERY sure now, that you are a ruthless, heartless dictator, and have now taken your place in history alongside Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Hussein, and, of course, let’s not forget your father, Hafez el Assad. From now on, you will be remembered in history, along with these men, and God-willing, sometime soon, you will be hanging from a light pole, in Downtown Damascus, for the crimes and massacres, you have committed, in front of the entire world, against your own people. You will burn in hell, ya Bashar…..next to you, on the other light poles, will be your brother Maher, your cousin Rami, the Butcher of Lebanon, Rustom Ghazali, and Farouk Sharaa, as well. I will fly to Syria, to spit on your bodies, as they hang in public….
