Independence day flag in Damascus

A daring act of defiance in the heart of the Mazzeh area, which is the main thoroughfare for Damascus. I can confirm from the surrounding buildings and layout. That takes some.

This is not a "fetish". It is a deliberate attempt to distinguish the vision of Syria that Assad's supporters hold, and the vision aspired to by members of the opposition (in all its confusion and variety).

The flag signifies this clear break, a reset button if you will, that represents to the nation a fresh start, away from the repression and the bloodshed.

I would like to add to your concluding statement that if the regime were also competent then this revolution would not have happened - or even been necessary.
