Interesting reads to be sure. I am suspect of the first article (Im not outright dismissing it, but am concerned about potential bias.) based on the
reporting body. The cresent also goes by the name of muslim media. It started out as a small town paper in Pakistan and has undergone several changes
voer the years, including one during the revolution in Iran in the 70's. It presents their article from a muslim perspective, so it is nice to see
what the view is from that side of the fence.
I did notice than when discussing Syria they kept the view fully western and ignored Turkey and its thoughts / actions on the matter (Turkey has Syria
under essentially a naval blockade, confiscating weapons going into the country from outside, and recently forced an Iranian cargo plane enroute to
Syria via Turkish airspace to land where tehy found more weapons on board.
That aside the comparison with international media is interesting because international media cant get into the country, and if they are there, they
cant go anywhere. It forces them to run unverified reports, which western media (at least here in the states - CNN / Fox / MSNBC) has pointed out.
Western media held a (ill try to find the video) interview with a member of the Syrian government. The questions asked and the answers received were
from 2 different planets.
Your own sources, in addition to pointing out the West, also call out Saudi Arabia, Jordan and several other non western countries.
I guess Ihave to go back to my origional question - What evidence (not speculation) is there that pins the protestors to NATO / US / Western
interference? Why are the non western countries involved ignored?
Why is it so impossible for people to accept that popular uprisings can occur without outside itnerference / influence?
Anyways, just my 2 cents. If anyone has answer to my questions please post em.
thanks for posting the links. As I said, it is an interesting read.
