Members of the Geneva-based council are expected to pass a resolution this week condemning 'widespread and systematic violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms by the Syrian authorities.'
A draft text supported by many Arab and Western nations says the Syrian regime's use of heavy artillery and tanks to attack civilian areas has contributed to the deaths of thousands.
The U.N. political chief B. Lynn Pascoe said Tuesday that 'well over' 7,500 people have died in Syria violence and that there are 'credible' reports that more than 100 civilians are dying in the country daily. Activists groups said Monday that the death toll for 11 months of unrest has now surpassed 8,000 people.
'Unfortunately, the international community has also failed in its duty to stop the carnage, and actions and inactions to date have seemed to encourage the regime in its belief that it has impunity to carry out the wanton destruction of its own civilians,' Pascoe said.
Where were this so called international community when 40,000 innocents were butchered in Vanni in May 2009 by Barbarians of this Planet?
