2012-05-26 22:50

Washington - The White House says it is horrified by the brutal attack in Syria that killed more than 90 people, including at least 32 children.

National Security Council spokesperson Erin Pelton said on Saturday that the attack serves as a "vile testament to an illegitimate regime" of President Bashar Assad.

The head of the UN observer team said the assault on Houla, a group of villages northwest of the besieged city of Homs, killed more than 60 adults and at least 32 children under the age of 10.

The White House says the Syrian regime is responding to peaceful political protest with "unspeakable and inhuman brutality".

    Then do something about it! Don't give your power away to the gun-running Russian regime, and the autocratic self-centered Chinese regime.

      You speak with a forked tongue. You supported Russia and China's veto in the Security Council of concerted action against Assad.

      The chances of that happening are close to zero, thankfully.
