Hehehe, the internet will probably be the downfall of the Syrian terror regime... kind of like Glasnost and Perestroijka in the Soviet Union: Giving people a voice will make them speak out, and what they say isn't neccesarily in favor of whomever's in charge.

Just claiming ownership of the comment above.

You are dead right. The fall of the Berlin Wall was predicted in the seventies and eighties by a professor who sadly died just as it happened. But he was spot on with his view that once a society is opened up to alternative views about itself and others it cannot then sustain a repressive regime. So it will be with Syria and Iran and North Korea and Zimbabwe, so long as there is a free flow of information
