Wish for the Western media to be more precise when reporting about Syria.Part of Daraa isn’t Daraa,and some of Syria is not all of Syria.One more point to illuminate;further provocation to Syria will not be confined to Syria alone but will engulf the whole region, Israel included.

Several million Syrians throughout the country took to the streets on Tuesday, 21 June 2011. The crowds were particularly dense and impressive in Damascus Alep, Tartous and Homs.

They turned out to express their support for the reform measures announced by President Bashar Al-Assad the previous day in the speech he delivered at the University of Damascus.

The scale of the demonstrations, unprecedented in the history of Syria, are a token of the huge popular support enjoyed by the «regime», so widely demonized by Western media and political leaders.
