Explosions, gunfire reported in Syria

Violence flared in Syria on Saturday, leaving at least 28 people dead, activists said.

The Arab League condemned the violence and warned of a crisis in the region if the Syrian government does not comply with an agreement made Wednesday with the group to "stop all violence" and allow outside observers into the country.

Opposition groups reported explosions, shelling, and heavy machine-gun fire Saturday in the western Syrian city of Homs, a hotbed of anti-government sentiment and government-led crackdowns. At least 23 people died there, the Local Coordination Committees of Syria said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, another activist group, put the Homs death toll at 11 earlier in the day.

    The arab league warned of a crisis in the region if Syria doesn't honor their agreement with them to stop all violence.
    Translation :
    If you don't stop now we're going to call NATO to come in, because we don't have the balls to do it ourselves. Then you'll be sorry.

    This is such nonsense.
    Did anyone really think that the AL's "demands" were going to make any difference?

    Maybe it would have if they all stamped their feet for emphasis when they made the demands.

    @banasy
    I woke up in a facetious mood this morning. That's why I'm fracking around so much. I guess it's going to be one of those days.

    "stop all violence" and allow outside observers into the country". Hasn't this statement been made just before an 'invasion' with the other middle east countries.

    This is really the last, last, straw for Assad. He has killed thousands and thousands already. But now he has killed on a Muslim holiday. Allah can tolerate the killing of innocents on any day except a holy Muslim holiday. You remember the song, "and you can kill me on a Monday, a Tuesday, a Wednesday, but never, never on a Sunday, a Sunday, a holiday, I need a little rest."
