L'escalation delle proteste in Siria 08.06.11

Secondo Robert Fisk, corrispondente dal Medio Oriente per il quotidiano britannico The Independent, la situazione in Siria starebbe rapidamente mutando da protesta contro il regime a insurrezione armata.

Syria's revolt against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad is turning into an armed insurrection, with previously peaceful demonstrators taking up arms to fight their own army and the "shabiha" - meaning "the ghosts", in English - of Alawi militiamen who have been killing and torturing those resisting the regime's rule.

Even more serious for Assad's still-powerful supporters, there is growing evidence that individual Syrian soldiers are revolting against his forces. The whole edifice of Assad's Alawi dictatorship is now in the gravest of danger.
