Syria forces execute 10 children of rebels: monitor

Beirut (AFP) - Ten children were among at least 48 people killed in a Syrian village this week when regime forces executed six families of rebel fighters, a monitoring group said on Saturday.

Tuesday's executions took place in the village of Rityan, north of second city Aleppo, after regime forces entered that day during an offensive aimed at cutting rebel supply lines to the Turkish border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

According to the monitoring group, they were the latest of nearly 6,000 people killed across Syria since the UN Security Council passed resolution 2139 on February 22 last year.

The Observatory "has documented the killing of 5,812 civilians, including 1,733 children, 969 women and 3,110 men in barrel bombings and (other) air raids" over the past year.

The raids have continued despite Resolution 2139, which ordered all sides to end their "indiscriminate employment of weapons in populated areas, including shelling and aerial bombardment, such as the use of barrel bombs".

Syria's conflict began as a peaceful pro-democracy revolt but morphed into a civil war that has killed more than 210,000 people since March 2011.

Between Assad's Shi'ite allies and the radical IS Sunnies, there can't be too many "moderate" rebels left to be Obama's sandals on the ground.

These days John McCain has been a vocal opponent of ISIS. But it wasnt long ago that he went to Syria to meet with factions of rebels fighting the Syrian government who now have turned out to be ISIS members.

While there are many factions fighting against the Assad Regime, those in the pictures taken with Senator McCain have been positively identified as members of the self-styled Islamic State.

The very same terrorist group which is now carrying out ruthless attacks on Christians, Yazidis and Shiites, was in fact who Senator McCain was promoting, in much the same way that the Reagan Administration lauded the proto-Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

After Senator McCain returned from his trip to Syria, he said that it was a very moving experience to meet these fighters who have been struggling now for over two years.

McCain told CNNs Anderson Cooper that theyre very aware of the battlefield situation.

Furthermore, he explained on Coopers 360 show, that, theyre very disturbed about the dramatic influx of Hezbollah fighters, more Iranians, and of course, stepped-up activities of Bashar Assad.

Arm the Kurds and tell them to clean up the mess and they get their own homeland. Simple as that. Then as we leave we give them lots of ammo.

Which is probably why you aren't running the country. It is not a good plan.

No, it isn't. Especially since that "homeland" would necessarily have to include some of our NATO member Turkey.

I'm not saying it's Texas but there just aren't a lot of viable foreign policy ideas coming out of that place.

Turkey may be our ally technically, but they sure haven't done much to shut down IS, rather they spend their time targeting the Kurds instead. And besides, Turkey has been rather friendly with Iran, specifically negotiating a joint venture (despite denials) to build nuclear "power plants".

Erdogan and ISIS see eye to eye. But Erdogan isn't Turkey even if he will go to great lengths to make it seem that way to the outside world.
