Britain warns of 'a day of reckoning' for Syrian regime amid reports of executions
(CNN) -- The opposition accused Syrian forces of executing 10 people Friday in a shattered rebel stronghold in Homs as Britain's leader warned President Bashar al-Assad's regime will face a "day of reckoning."
The harsh rebuke by British Prime Minister David Cameron came the same day an aid agency said truckloads of food and medical supplies arrived in Homs and was bound for Baba Amr, the flashpoint neighborhood in a nearly yearlong uprising that has left thousands dead.
"Above all, what I think matters is building the evidence and the picture so we hold this criminal regime to account, and to make sure it is held to account for crimes that it is committing against its people," Cameron told reporters outside a meeting of leaders of the European Union in Brussels, Belgium.
"And one day, no matter how long it takes, there will be a day of reckoning for this dreadful regime."

2. On the same day that Bush and Blair are held to account for Iraq, that will be justice.
What the US and its "coalition of the willing" did in Iraq was truly a crime against humanity: launched a military invasion on false pretenses, prosecuted an aggressive war that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and destroyed that country, and then opened the place to exploitation by private contractors with political ties to the (Bush-Cheney) regime while we occupied Iraq for nearly a decade.
We've done far, far worse, and nobody has been held responsible.
