Every time the Syrian rebels lose a town, it is said in the Western media that it is key as a link to the `Alawite heartland

“Syrian troops drove insurgents from central Homs on Monday, tightening their siege on remaining rebel bastions in the strategically important city, which links Damascus to the Mediterranean heartland of President Bashar al-Assad’s Alawite sect.” (thanks Ali)
