"Twin bombings struck security buildings in the Syrian commercial hub of Aleppo on Friday, killing at least 25 and injuring 175, Syrian state media reported. The attacks caused extensive damage to the structures and nearby residences, reported the official Syrian Arab News Agency. State media labeled the strikes 'terrorist attacks,' placing responsibility on armed rebels who have been trying to overthrow the government of President Bashar Assad." [editor's note: As if US media, state and otherwise, doesn't label attacks on government buildings -- the Oklahoma City bombing, for example -- "terrorism?" - TLK] (02/10/12)
