Thirty-four Syrian soldiers were killed by army defectors and regime forces gunned down countless innocent civilians as tension increased in the 8-month battle in Syria.
The President Bashar Assad, known as a tyrant to many Syrian citizens, continues to ignore political leaders asking him to step down from his position. Due to the increase in bloodshed, the Arab League has shut Syria away from them, completely cutting off ties with their once-allies.
The Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated, “No one can build a future over the blood of the oppressed.”
Erdogan (pictured above) had been close with Assad prior to the start of the uprisings in March.
Jordan’s King Abdullah II has also asked Assad to step down from his position. The 22-member Arab League has joined together and have decided that DamDamascus would be suspended from the league, therefore icing out Syria and Assad.
We can only wait to see what Assad with do next.

In Athens, Greece, Lucas Papademos has been sworn in as Prime Minister after weeks of constant political turmoil. He is a Technocrat and previously was a policymaker of the European Central Bank. He hopes to collaborate with other European leaders to improve the economic issues that have been plaguing all of Europe.
The difficult situation in Mexico has been ongoing for years now as the ‘Drug War’ continues to take a toll on the people of Mexico. Everyone is becoming a victim to the notorious drug cartels that appear to be collecting in both large cities and small villages.
The President, Felipe Calderon has dealt with only one main issue since taking office in 2006. The main issue of that year is still the main issue today; the drug cartels and their crimes.
Although many problems have arisen, and many deaths have occurred throughout these past years, justification has yet to come.
Few have been punished for their crimes and actions, and now those who are trying to end the drug issues in Mexico are being punished themselves.
170 deaths have been documented at the hands of Mexican security forces, and the reports state that many have been murdered by asphyxiation, electrocution, and many other ways.
But who are the real criminals here? The men who are doing what they are being commanded to under Calderon, or the men who have caused more than 35,000 deaths: the men of the drug cartels.
Although it is difficult to pardon those who have caused pain to the families of those tortured and deceased at the hands of the security forces, more people have felt pain at the hands of the men of drug cartels.
A solution to the drug problem in Mexico seems very far away, but something must be done about the manner in which security forces deal with their detainees, if only to silence opposition.
Perhaps they could simply be kept in a confined and heavily guarded prison until they are ready to speak, and if they don’t come forward, then that prison will be their home until their deaths.
But the men who are fighting to protect the lives of the Mexican citizens who have done nothing wrong should not be punished, but they should be praised for their actions in protecting the citizens of Mexico.
