shared some of these images over the weekend. Our community weighed in. Laura Houston equated the "atrocities" to Egypt, and said that she believes "on the side of Freedom, regardless of what part of this Earth it is that we all live on. Tears...for all."
The atrocities from the military onto innocent lives this week is beyond words from anyones heart ......... I am saddened by these events continueing as well as the planned coup that devoured feedom and democracy in Egypt destroying lives and families. I can wish that the hate on the people of Syria and Egypt goes back to these Military and Dictators 10 fold, and it will. As anyone should, I believe on the side of Freedom, regardless of what part of this Earth it is that we all live on. Tears...for all.facebook.com
Timothy Woodard raised the claim that according to Syrian state television, the alleged attack was initiated by Syrian rebel forces.
I have friends in Syria they say it's rebel forces that used the gas.facebook.com
Mike Combs agreed.
It's a shame the rebels killed those kids for propaganda pictures.facebook.com
Houston responded to both Combs and Woodard
the rebels did not kill the rebels, Assad has and the military.facebook.com
