Syrian tanks took up positions outside the city of Hama on Saturday, where tens of thousands of people took to the streets to mourn the deaths of at least 65 protesters gunned down by security forces there the day before.
The government’s violent crackdown against a three-month-old popular uprising continued, with helicopter gunships killing 10 people in a neighboring province and residents of Hama bracing for a military assault that would be the first on the city since the government bombed it in 1982, killing at least 10,000 people.
Meanwhile, it's been a month and a half since Obama condemned Syria for killing demonstrators.
Obama has yet to explain why attacking Libya without Congressional authorization is OK, but attacking Syria is not.
Does Obama play eenie-meenie-minie-moe to decide what countries to attack?
