Assad's Shrinking Crowds?


Here is a Youtube video said to show yesterday's pro-Assad demonstration at Ummayad Square. It shows a rather small crowd of supporters attending the president's speech, and compared to previous demos the attendance seems quite poor. Also, from the angle this video is being shot, it seems to have been taken from the Syria TV studios so I don't know why somebody there would take this shot and then release it for the world to see.

Well the battle of the video clips continues. I don't accept the rationale behind the regime "banning" certain media outlets but not others from states sympathetic to Assad. This kind of confusion and nonsense is the result of the regime's ban, whether they intend it or not. If everybody was allowed to report openly and transparently from all parts of the country then we would all have a better picture. But perhaps the intention behind the ban is precisely to stop people from getting a better picture.
