BEIRUT – Syrian army units have clashed with each other over following President Bashar Assad's orders to crack down on protesters in Daraa, a besieged city at the heart of the uprising, witnesses and human rights groups said Thursday.
More than 450 people have been killed across Syria — about 100 in Daraa alone — and hundreds detained since the popular revolt against Assad began in mid-March, according to human rights groups.
It's every nations right to kill their citizens.

Mike, if I am not mistaken you are in the military. How do you think this conflict or possibly, revolution, will affect Syrian-Israeli relations?

I wouldn't be surprised if Syria destabilizes and Hezbollah come in from Lebanon and Sunni Insurgents backed by Al Qaeda come in from Iraq and they slaughter each other. Syria has the potential to turn into 1983 Lebanon with various factions all fighting for control.
