The atrocity has been committed. The body bags containing children shown by the world wide media. Our Foreign Secretary appears in public with his 'grave' face set demanding that measures should be taken against the Assad regime.
There is just one little inconvenient fact missing. Nobody yet knows who committed the atrocity? They were not killed by bombs but someone entered homes and shot in the kids in their own houses. What would the Assad government gain by doing this? It would only ensure that the rest of the world would put President Assad into the same category as Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gadaffi and we all know what happened to them.
The Syrian government continue to complain about the 'tsunami of lies' being told about their actions but of course nobody will listen to them. Not when the people who control the world's media want you to believe otherwise. I am prepared to admit that I could be wrong but I have read the history books and this scenario is all too familiar.
