Children tortured and killed … a seven-month-old baby decapitated in front of his mother … the crimes of the Syrian regime are sickening; the atrocities, reminiscent of Nazi SS murderers. Click here for the story.

If Russia really wants to prevent an international intervention in Syria, it should make every effort it possibly can to pressure its Arab ally to stop slaughtering civilians--and stop targeting children.
