From Imad Khadduri:

Syrian thugs … Alcbihp

This is a hidden camera video (10 minutes – no translation required) of Syrian government thugs, called “Shabiha”, with batons attacking and dragging away unarmed demonstrators in Damascus streets.

They are similar to Egypt’s “Baltajia” who often attacked demonstrators (once they were riding on camels) during Egypt’s February revolution.

They are similar to the disgraced Maliki thugs (some in Arab customs) from his Da’waa party who were bus loaded from the city of Karbala, near his Twairij hometown, to attack unarmed civilians last Friday (June 10, 2011) in Tahrir Square in Baghdad. Iraqis haven’t found a word for them, yet! They soon will.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
