[Letters] The Assad regime’s shame

Syrians continue to face torture and death at the hands of the Assad regime as international sanctions have either been blocked or shown to have little effect. When a government wantonly guns people down for peaceably assembling, the populace is fully justified in taking up arms, and members of the regime’s forces must choose between protecting the public and serving the state. The Assad regime’s ban on foreign journalists makes it more difficult to see what is going on, but clearly shows what the regime thinks of freedom and accountability.
