Shadowy Viral-Media Campaign Shaping Events in Syria?
"Got your attention, didn’ t I?
Yes I did, just like the two big stories about Syria that rocketed to the top of the Internet’s “trending” charts over the past few days. No, I’m not talking about the alleged massacre of Syrian security officials in Jisr al-Shughour or the government’s planned response. I’m talking about the fake resignation of Syria’s ambassador to France on live TV, and the strange story of Amina Abdallah Araf al-`Omari’s disappearance."
"Am I the only one who feels in the lurch regarding this news of 8,000 pardons being issued as a temporary law? This is one of those “announcements” that seems to come out of the blue and is a clear attempt at appeasement given the timing."
"I was recently forwarded an email with numerous photos of Gaza, most of them old, pre-siege, late 90s even. A few photos included Palestinians at the sea, as if to say since they are under siege they should not take advantage of the one resource left to them, albeit massively polluted by their own sewage."
"Idlib province, which is only 45 minutes from Aleppo is the eye of the hurricane. The government is poring troops into the region to make sure it remains under firm control. Syria cannot afford to lose territory where an insurgency or rebel army might emerge. Damascus will do everything it can to preclude the formation of a Benghazi, which would allow foreign intelligence agencies and governments to begin arming and training a rebel army, as happened in Libya."
