The few grainy mobile phone clips that are emerging from Syria are alarming. It is quite clear that the people are in open revolt against the government. As in Libya the government has responded with as much force as it can muster.
They will never learn. When the people take to the streets there is only ever one outcome. Eventually no matter how many bullets are fired into how many crowds the people get their hands on the responsible person. The days of Bashar al Asad are numbered. He is dead man walking.
I do wonder however, when the utterly cowed people of North Korea will rebel. Their's must be the most evil regime in the world to commit a whole population to public humiliation! I can't believe that there is a country in the world, no matter how hard line, who does not wince at the performance of the North Koreans!! Of course if you are that terrified you will act your heart out no matter how badly!
My heart goes out to them.
I have included Ed Miliband in my labels because his desire is that we will all weep like the North Koreans if he receives a vote from anyone who does not have a vested interest in the European socialist empire! All together now! Wowweeeeeeee!
