Also seems the government official story has changed. Now it's no longer foreign rebels shooting protesters but poorly trained police officers.

(Sorry the article is in Arabic :/) This article says that a doctor was found dead on the way leading to Aleppo with torture marks on his body, and he was strangled to death. He was reported missing by his brother on Wednedsay, but no info came untill his body was found. Could this be just a normal "murder"?

things are getting pretty ugly

between the other media sources making things bigger

and the syrian channels pretending like nothing is going on

the public lost sense and got no idea what's really going on anymore

it sure is a mess though

(assuming you're being serious) Life is pretty normal in Aleppo and central Damascus, as well as some areas around it, so this wont happen anytime soon, apparently most protests are in "rural" areas.

There were about 100 people protesting infront of Al-Rawda mosque on friday, it lasted 5 minutes. (protesting in Aleppo is a deathwish) And they cut the internet yesterday, I called the ISP and they said it was a "technical error"

The disparity between the NATO campaign to get rid of Gaddafi and the limp response to similar or worse government doings in Syria, is stark. And it certainly does raise the question the oil/no oil factor.

well there's protests but they're made bigger than they really are on

tv channels dekker

and for nato or outside interfernce in syria it won't happen

syria is not easy or isolated like libya

IF interfernce happened i assure you that'll stop people

from protesting and turn to fight off outsiders

the oppositions and the goverment agree on one point

" no western interfernce "

however .. usa and eu nato etc would know better not to get involved

in syria they'll be wiped off on so many directions

syria got hold over resistance movements in all over middle east

in iraq , palestine , hezboallah .. iran as an ally too

it'll be regionalism war
