SteveLendmanBlog: Making Sense of Syria:
... Syrians indeed want democratic change nonviolently. "(A)rmed groups operating from behind the screen of the demonstrations have no interest in reform." Representing Western interests, "(t)hey want to destroy the government."
In contrast, large segments of Syria support it. Externally supported "armed gangs" fueled anger over "their country (being) the target of an international conspiracy."
Heavily armed insurgents "killed hundreds of police, soldiers and civilians, in total probably (around) 1,000...." Those killed include "university professors, doctors, and (recently) the son of the Grand Mufti of the Republic."
Armed gangs "massacred, ambushed, assassinated, attacked government buildings and sabotaged railway lines."
Clearly Western intervention is involved in what's tearing apart the country...
