    Syrian air force jets bombarded rebel targets on Friday

    It's hard to "bombard" targets with jets unless you've built up the terrorist angle. Assad knows this.

    Internet connections and most telephone lines were down for a second day

    Which goes in line with Assad trying to keep journalists off the ground in Syria. He doesn't want the world to see what is really happening while he's giving us all of the answers, with the help of Ru$$ia and Iran, of course.

    Syria’s Internet shut down on Thursday, a move which activists blamed on authorities but which authorities variously attributed to a “terrorist” attack or a technical fault.

    Absolutely classic. It's a technical glitch. Oh, and if it's not that, then it's terrorists. One of the two, I dunno. The authorities obviously just default to "terrorists" for everything now. Your coffee isn't hot enough? Might be terrorists. Start bombing Starbucks now.

    Ban told the U.N. General Assembly. "Opposition elements also have stepped up their attacks. I am horrified and saddened and condemn the seemingly daily massacres of civilians,"

    The FSA rebels have become so bad that even the UN secretary had to comment on their brutality.

    The rebels are slaughtering civilians en masse, most especially Christians and anybody who doesn't adhere to their brand of fundamentalist Islam.

    People are being forced to accept Sharia law from the barrel of a crazed Islamic militant holding an AK47.

    Let's hope the Syrian army can keep these nutcases at bay.

    Oops, I am sorry, it seems that NeverSubmit has left off the first half of the description:

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the conflict had reached “new and appalling heights of brutality and violence.” The government had intensified its campaigns to root out opposition strongholds and increased shelling and air strikes, Ban told the U.N. General Assembly. “Opposition elements also have stepped up their attacks. I am horrified and saddened and condemn the seemingly daily massacres of civilians,” he added.

    The UN Secretar is expressing sorrow for those caught in between and plainly condemning both sides.

    At least 12 Lebanese gunmen were killed in a Syrian army ambush in the central Syrian province of Homs

    More proof that this is not a domestic uprising but instead an Al Qaeda inspired Islamic insurgency manned by ruthless foreign fighters.

    "More proof that this is not a domestic uprising"

    Only if your novel but dapper alumiminum head gear is worn too tightly.

    No it's not. It just says they are Lebenese. Doesn't say they are Islamist, or Al Qaida inspired.

    Assad is getting desperate by turning off the whole internet in Syria. He has no choice but to keep the airport road open just in case he needs to escape. Now even more U.S. Republicans are calling for increased U.S. support for the Free Syrian Army, as they're sensing an opportunity to strike the fatal blows.

    In case you don't know, Lebanon is a different country from Syria. They are foreigners and they're probably inside Syria illegally.

    So why exactly are 12 Non-Syrian people inside Syria with machine guns in hand.

    Would any country tolerate that?

    How would your country respond if 12 foreigners crossed the border illegally with AK47s in hand and started shooting government officials.

    Syria is fighting a foreign invasion.

    Maybe they wanted to show the Syrian government how they felt when the Syrian army occupied Lebanon.

    Ridiculous.

    Several companies around the world have licenses to produce these, including one in Chicago.
