Marie Colvin killed: Syrian forces had pledged to kill ‘any journalist who set foot on Syrian soil’
“Our mission is to report these horrors of war with accuracy and without prejudice,” said Marie Colvin. “The Syrian army is simply shelling a city of cold, starving civilians.”
Today it was confirmed that the war correspondent Marie Colvin has died in the Syrian city of Homs.
Marie Colvin was killed alongside French photographer Remi Ochlik, 28, in a rocket attack on the besieged city of Homs.
What is the world waiting for? We keep watching women and children being killed and we do NOTHING. Call/email your congressman/senator… do something to put pressure on the White House… the killings MUST STOP

Syria: Medicine as a Weapon of Persecution

HollywoodNews.com: PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS – The Syrian regime is conducting a campaign of unrelenting repression against people wounded in demonstrations and the medical workers trying to treat them, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said today.
While MSF cannot work directly in Syria, it has collected testimonies from wounded patients treated outside the country and from doctors inside Syria. The testimonies, collected from several people from various parts of the country, point to a crackdown on the provision of urgent medical care for people wounded in the ongoing violence in Syria.
“In Syria today, wounded patients and doctors are pursued, and risk torture and arrest at the hands of the security services,” said Marie-Pierre Allié, MSF president. “Medicine is being used as a weapon of persecution.”
Most of the wounded do not go to public hospitals for fear of being arrested or tortured. When a wounded person is admitted to a hospital, a false name is sometimes provided to hide his or her identity. Doctors will provide false diagnoses to help patients elude security forces, which search for patients with wounds consistent with those sustained in protests and demonstrations.
PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS. DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO TO HELP!
