Syria is proving a harder nut to crack than the Western Media imagined. The uprisng is largely confined to a few towns where there has been trouble in the past and generally the Syrian army is in control.
If there were elections who would win? And if Assad won would the elections be declared by the Western Media as corrupt? Are America and the EU opposed to Syria because Russia and China support it? Or is it the other way round?
Syria is Israel's implacable enemy, giving aid to Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran.
But Syria is also a safe haven for Christians. Many Iraqi Christians have found sanctuary there.
It is a conundrum.
