Tanks in Syria's Deraa city, bodies in street -witness

(Reuters) - Eight tanks and two armoured vehicles deployed in the old quarter of the besieged Syrian city of Deraa and several bodies were seen lying in a main street near the Omari mosque, a witness said on Monday.

The witness in Deraa said snipers on government buildings and security forces in army fatigues had been shooting at random at houses since tanks moved in just after dawn prayers.

"People are taking cover in homes. I could see two bodies near the mosque and no one was able to go out and drag them away," the witness said.


Hopefully, Syria will not turn into another Libya. Syria has a significantly more powerful military and a particularly determined leadership (the Alawites).

I've been following this and it really does seem to be following the exact same path as Libya (from my UK perspective) the noises by the FCO seem to be the same.. the stories on the MSM the same..

I honestly see a pattern emerging that leads me to feel that at some point we (in the West) will start another round of intervention.

IMHO.. the economic warfare that has been waged over the last few years is now turning into a militaristic one and another sad page in human history.

Yemen will collapse before Syria but they are definitely on the list of countries which must fall. What I find most interesting about all of these developments is the fact that they all claim it is an international conspiracy to undermine their national sovereignty and overthrow entire legitimate governments. Libya, Iran, Syria, and China have all claimed this year that the protests within their respective countries are all a conspiracy.

Whether or not that is true has yet to be seen. However if we are to interpret these revolutions as ones perpetrated by Western intelligence forces than their argument of a conspiracy would be sound but then we would want to know what information they have which will prove such a conspiracy.

It is no doubt that the Islamists have an invested interest in these revolutions and helping to push them. In Egypt we now have the Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson saying that their organization had launched a political party for the September elections and are expecting 75% elected officials to be for their party. Certain sects of Libyan rebels are affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda yet we have launched a military offensive against the Qaddafi regime to aid and assist rebels with which their background is supposedly unknown to our government.

Syria is also a close ally with Iran and had made a formal agreement that should Iran, Syria, or Lebanon be harmed by the West/Israel then they all must defend each other. Hezbollah, an extremist Islamist party, now runs Lebanon so it is no wonder that we do not hear of instability from that nation because those across the Middle East staging these revolutions already own Lebanon. Have you never asked yourself why Lebanon and Gaza have been free from revolutionary protest? Look at who runs their governments, Hezbollah and Hamas respectively.

This is a game and they are about to declare “checkmate”.

I would say we are on the way as the economic warfare that has been taking place over the last couple of year is turning very militaristic.. it seems an unavoidable but sad day for humanity if that comes to pass.

Assad is sending heavy equipment over to Deraa source


A resident of Deraa, speaking under the condition of anonymity for his own safety, said that security forces had taken over the town hospital, and were shooting at anyone who approached the building.

"Snipers are on top of all the buildings in Deraa and there are lots of bodies on the streets," the man said in a phone interview. "They were left on the street for three days and we couldn't remove them."

Troops had sealed off the town, and were searching homes at night.
