If that link posting didn't work try to search it by just searching Syrian general, two colonels defect, join ranks of defectors in Turkey with dozens of soldiers, families. There are over at least 5584 news articles and the National Turk hows up first at the topText
The latest Syrian army defections came following the dire event of Syria shooting down a Turkish F-4 jet on international waters near Syria Turkey border. Turkey is preparing to raze Syria to the ground with a joint NATO operation. Syria is backed up by Putin’s Russia and China. Winter is coming..
Now either it's a big propaganda campaign

What I meant by [there seems to be more defections by the day] is that I first heard of a Jet Pilot, now the General and colonels then from your provided link to more stories of 8 and some stating 12 soldiers etc etc .
Now either it's a big propaganda campaign or the Syrian military is really jumping ship...
ETA: I think it's a bit of both. As more Syrian military start to think long and hard about what happened in Libya they are starting to skip out then the West's Media catch wind of it and start ramping up the rhetoric and propaganda.
One feeds off of the other.edit on 26-6-2012 by SLAYER69 because: (no reason given)

Well not a lot of defections just 13 in total and with the soldiers and there families, they know whats coming a NATO scorched earth policy apparently it seems from the way i read the National turk bottom part.
Russia, China wont like this, but you can bet John McCain sure will.
