Topic: Syria death toll now exceeds 210,000: rights group


The death toll after nearly four years of civil war in Syria has risen to 210,060, nearly half of them civilians, but the real figure is probably much higher, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday. The Observatory, which is based in Britain and has a network of activists across Syria, said that 10,664 children and 6,783 women were among the dead. Peaceful protests against four decades of rule by President Bashar al-Assad's family in March 2011 degenerated into an armed insurgency following a fierce security crackdown, with the sectarian nature of the conflict echoing across the Middle East. The Observatory's toll could not be independently verified by Reuters.

Rights groups are next to useless they count beans and what the beans do in Syria is entirely up to the Syrians . My theory is arm the bean counters and send them to Nigeria along with Ms. .Obama and bring those girls home .
