The Crackdown Continues In Syria

Syrians continue streaming into Turkey to evade Syrian forces hell bent on cracking down on the opposition. Turkey is closely monitoring the situation along the border, particularly as Syria continues sending more and more troops into the border provinces.

Despite months of crackdowns, Syrians continue protesting against Assad's brutality. 15 protesters were killed yesterday.

Despite all the evidence to the contrary, Assad's media outlets are claiming that the extent of the protests and opposition are fabricated and exaggerated. Assad's so far removed from reality and insulated from the everyday lives of Syrians who toil under his harsh regime that he doesn't understand the full extent of the protests and how his regime has lost what little support it maintained.
