China and Russia using their veto power has only empowered the megalomaniac bastard in Syria.
He’s turned the world into fools, because he knows that he can get away with whatever he wants.
Daily reports of increased shelling, deaths are now being counted in hundreds, not dozens as before.
Syria crisis: Shelling ‘kills dozens’ in restive Homs
The Syrian army has launched fresh mortar and rocket attacks in the city of Homs, as the government continues a push aimed at crushing rebel forces.
Activists say 95 people have been killed so far on Thursday. Hundreds have reportedly died since last week.
Homs, Syria’s third-largest city, has been a leading focus of unrest in the 11-month uprising against President Bashar al-Assad’s rule.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemned the “appalling brutality” of the onslaught.
The international community is struggling to find a way to resolve the crisis after Russia and China blocked a UN resolution drafted by Arab and European countries on Saturday.
The assault on Homs, which began late on Friday, is focused on districts that are controlled by rebel forces.
The worst shelling has been in the Baba Amr district, where activists say 50 people were killed on Wednesday alone.
