I will not sign any petition on Syria (or on any other Arab country--or Iran, for that matter) that calls for "reform". I can only sign petitions that call for the outright overthrow of the regime. It is clear from the blood record of Bashshar and from his arrogance that his regime is a continuation of his father's regime, the hopes of naive "reformists" notwithstanding. But the regime is responding to the crisis; not only with silly technical TV programs that lie, but also through staging of the "biggest" Syrian flag. When you can't feed the people freedoms and bread, feed them...flags.
