Syria: Horror of Homs

Catch some gripping video on the situation in Homs, Syria, by a French journalist with commentary from Britain’s Channel 4. A comment from a New York Times blog:

As Jonathan Miller of Channel 4 News observed, “While the world has become used to grainy shaky and gruesome footage and images from Homs fed through whatever Internet connection is available, Mani’s crystal clear and incredible footage gives perhaps the clearest and most frightening account of what Homs has been like for the past three weeks.”

What went through your mind as you viewed scene after scene? How do such visual reports influence audiences worldwide about the situation in Syria, and about President Assad?
