Syria: Signs Of Dissent Among Ruling Party

Some 200 members of Syria's ruling Baath party are reported to have resigned over the violent crackdown against pro-democracy demonstrations.

At least 400 civilians killed in Syria revolt

Witness: Dead bodies left out in Syrian city under siege

Western powers push for end to Syria crackdown

Turkey urges Syria to stop crackdown

Russia blocks Security Council censure of Syria Actually Russia, China and Lebanon have blocked a move for the UN Security Council to condemn Syria's crackdown on dissent. Sanctioning slaughter is more like it!

This is all our fault after more than a century of interference in the Middle East and Africa. Bush set it all in motion by attacking Iraq to get into the middle east to destabilize it and start the new middle east order the idiot said God told him to do now it will be up to Iran and Saudi Arabia at least up front fight it out whether this goes the Iranian Shiite way or the Saudi Arabian Sunni way and do not forget Israel!

You know I firmly believe and have said so a million times by now that since 9/11 everything was construed to allow Bush to gain the power he needed to prosecute his new order not just in the Middle East but on the entire world! He diverted from Afghanistan to get back into the Middle East with the goal of setting up a larger safety zone for Israel and going after Iran. Both will fail! It has long been my contention that coming to Israel's aid once they attack Iran will be our in to Iran!

The entire middle east and north Africa and our more than century of interference and exploitation can take the blame for that too. Planting our military in the middle of the mess Bush has created out of the Middle East because of his failed Democratization program is going to be a Custer's Last Stand on a grand scale if we are still there when this breaks open! Looking at the war cabinet Obama has amassed I am going to say at this point that this is going to happen even under a President Obama.

You have to be very concerned about what is happening in Syria especially. Iran is not going to allow Syria to fall to Democracy. What we saw after the voter fraud in Iran was mild compared to what the IRG will do if this movement spreads to Iran. I really wish Bashir would step down but Iran is the elephant in the room any way you look at it. The total middle east breakdown we have written about numerous times is well under way. We can only hope we keep it from erupting into WW3.

Well from the looks of it this is just more cold war politics. Funny how Russia would support the Syrian government when it (Russia) has moved to a market economy. They are therefore supporting socialism with their support of a crackdown.
I believe however that the causes of these protests are the result of people reaching their final straw in terms of food and gas prices. And it seems Uganda is next on the list.

Yeah Demeur Uganda amongst others. Those Syrians are screwing with fire, think about what this means to Iran. It bothers me too that China and Russia openly sanction slaughtering your own people.
