|Man in a Desert||
Bashar al-Assad, the despicable head of the ruling clique in Syria has committed a terrible atrocity, encouraged by an international conspiracy of silence. The Houla Massacre is a stain of shame on the record of all those in power pretending to be powerless in the face of this horrendous savagery and others committed by Assad and his stormtroopers under the watchful gaze of his benefactors and detractors alike.
Meanwhile the New York Times reports that Barack Obama wants to entice the Russians to accept a Yemen-style solution for Syria.
Does that include immunity from prosecution for the war crime of Houla, Mr Obama? And what about you Messrs Putin and Ahmedinejad...
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
