    Death toll mounts on Syria's 'day of rage'

    Syria = Libya 2.0?



    Dozens of people have been shot dead by Syrian security forces, activists claim, as tens of thousands took part in anti-government rallies dubbed a "day of rage".

    Activists said at least 50 protesters were killed across the country on Friday, although Al Jazeera cannot independently verify the death toll.

    At least 15 people were reported killed near Deraa where security forces fired on thousands of protesters trying to enter the besieged southern city, sources told Al Jazeera's Rula Amin.

    Deraa has been the scene of regular demonstrations since protests against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's rule began last month, but the city has also borne the brunt of weeks of government repression.

    The government claims its forces are battling "extremist and terrorist groups in the town" and said two soldiers were killed on Friday.

    Isn't is interesting that all of the protests in the World are using the same phrase: "Day of Rage"

    The thing is it has been called for here by the Left, so keep your eyes open, and be ready to defend the Constitution because it is already under attack by Obama and much of the Left and when they have their "Day of Rage" here we might have a problem in need of our best Citizens,

    As for Syria and the rest of the Middle East, other than the oil I don't care if they all kill each other.

    As to the oil we import, most of ours comes from Canada, and if Obama was not trying to wreck the economy he'd open up the closed areas here and we could tall the Middle East to pound sand, and they would find real quick that they have nothing to offer the world but their Cult of hate.
