a message from the west:

To the Syrian people: The World stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Know that time and history are on your side- tyrants use violence because they have nothing else, and the more violent they are the more fragile they become. We salute your determination to be non-violent in the face of the regime’s brutality, and admire your willingness to peruse justice, not mere revenge. All tyrants will fall, and thanks to your bravery Bashar Al-Assad is next.

To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserve to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country- rise up against the regime!

The hacker collective Anonymous, known for its political activism, has recently targeted the Syrian government Defense Ministry's website. The defacement reflects anti-regime sentiment, and expresses support for the Syrian people. Cyberspace has created a new frontier, one in which civil society can wage a war on an unjust regime 
thousands of miles away.
