Horizon is right in both his comments, i am currently residing in Homs. Last week the "peaceful" protesters tortured and killed 50 people, i was "greeted" with a dead body last Thursday on my doorsteps, they are FORCING people to close down their shops to claim that Homs is on strike. My friends were threatened to leave their homes in the last 2 days by armed people. What opposition is selling the media as protests for democracy is 10 times worse the Syrian regime but no one wants to see, only people who are seeing with their own eyes know what i am talking about.
