    In Syria... is there Arab justice for Arab violence. 10,000 refugees in Turkey, 7,000 in Jordan and something like 5,000 in Lebanon. As of last count 6,270 civilian dead and that's just the ones that are verifiable by Human Rights organizations. Imagine the real body count. It's important to recognize that Syrian are dying every day... and nobody need mention the prison-torture or mutilation of children. Are all these victims terrorists and anarchists. And is this a factor of a foreign conspiracy. Moscow and Beijing say this can't be resolved by foreign intervention. Really... does the international community need to see 20,000 Syrians dead. If so, give Assad another few months. Just asking, how many Arab lives can be slaughtered... before the world imposes justice in Syria.
