L'escalation delle proteste in Siria 08.06.112011-06-11:50:20
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.
