More than 200 men, women and children appear to have been killed in this latest atrocity. Everything we have seen of the Syrian regime’s behaviour over the last seventeen months suggests that these reports are credible. They demand a united response from the international community.
We have two urgent priorities – to establish an accurate account of what happened in Tremseh so that those responsible can and will be held to account; and to agree urgent action at the United Nations Security Council.
To that end, the UN mission in Syria must be able to access Tremseh quickly and without hindrance so they can carry out an independent investigation into what has happened and who is responsible.
And we will redouble our efforts to agree a Chapter VII resolution of the UN security council. This would compel the Syrian regime to fulfil the commitments it has made under the Annan plan, to withdraw its military from residential areas, and establish a transitional government as called for by Kofi Annan and endorsed by the P5 and Arab League. It should be a legally binding security council resolution with teeth, that creates a trigger for sanctions if the Assad regime does not comply. British diplomats in New York will continue negotiations on a resolution at the security council today:

This butchery must stop and the UN should now just move in and restore order and the criminals who are responsible for these murders must be brought to justice ASAP.
The world stands condemned for standing by and allowing this genocide to continue !
The Syrian army is continuing to hunt down deserters near the northern city of Idlib after troops on Tuesday killed close to 150 men who had fled their base. The toll marked the deadliest day of the nine-month uprising and has rekindled fears of an imminent civil war.
The news of the high numbers of dead and ongoing battles in the north came as an advance party of Arab League observers arrived in Damascus in a bid to implement an agreement signed by Syrian officials to stand down its troops and enter into talks.
As the observers touched down, western officials again ratcheted up their rhetoric against President Bashar al-Assad, demanding that he leave office immediately and warning that more measures will follow if the agreement is not implemented.
Washington on Wednesday night issued its most strident statement yet, prompting speculation that it may be considering new ways of trying to stop the bloodshed, which some regional observers say has already changed from an anti-government uprising to full-blown civil war

Dear Mr. Gilmore,
You are no doubt aware of the serious murderous situation in Syria where ordinary people are faced each and every day with the prospect of been murdered by their own
security forces who have now reached the debts of outright slaughter of any opposition
to the current regime .As a person who has spent a lifetime in and out of
opposition surely you must feel for the rightful aspirations of the people of Syria
to engage in free parliamentary activity and there right to democracy .I call
on you now to demonstrate to the world the absolute rejection of the brutal and
murderous activities for the current Government of Syria .
Our own history is dotted with people who died in the struggle for our freedom, in their memory, and of our tradition of shearing and caring I call on you now to proclaim to
the world that we the people of Ireland do not support the current Syrian Government
and further more you must immediately call on the United Nation to take
whatever action is necessary to protect the innocent people of Syria from these
Monsters and to demand that the current leadership of Syria will be brought to
the international court of justice on crimes of murder and human rights abuse.
You are in a position to make your voice heard and you can justly clam to be to voice of the
Irish people in the corridors of power where this murder of the innocence can be stopped.
Your inaction will directly cause lives to be lost so do the right thing and start shouting stop
But let the world hear you!
Thomas O Cleirigh/Wicklow Town
There is something very wrong with the leadership of the Arab League, How can they even consider the possibility of keeping the current murderous Assad and his henchmen in power? The Arab League is becoming irrelevant in the mass public movement now gathering pace in the Middle East. The ordinary peoples of this region are now becoming aware of their civil liberties and their Human rights and they do not need these rights to be dispensed to them by unelected rulers who have stolen the people’s freedom, their countries wealth and enforced laws that perpetuate their criminal activities .The Arab League is nothing more than a boys club for despot dictators from the Arab world who all
would be deposed if there were free elections in each of their countries.Assad and his murdering henchmen must be brought before the international court of justice on crimes of murder against his own people!
