KTH: Syrian diplomat expelled from U.S.

The U.S. and eight other countries ask Syrian diplomats to leave in retaliation for the needless slaughter of more than 100 people, including dozens of children, in Houla. Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad has condemned the killings and promises an investigation. But Keeping Them Honest, after 15 months of violence and reports of 12,000 deaths the people of Syria deserve more. They want a promise to end the bloodshed.

    It's about time. We can't allow people who make excuses for executions of their own people – we must make them know they are unwelcome in our country.

    Russia and China: they proclaim this is an internal problem, let Syria take care of their internal problems. This is otherwise. Communist countries running murderous "slap downs" on the general population, primarily the part of the population who advocates rights for the people is something we should do quite a bit about . . . One could call this the last stronghold, and unfortunately the last country China and Russia justify their own brutality through.
