A reader from Syria--let us call her D.--sent me a message. Here is an excerpt: " I want to tell you a small secret, something I noticed during my 8 years of living here: we are all against our regime in a way or other, but we'll be shot, decapitated, resurected to be hanged again if we'll allow our country to become like Iraq. We saw what liberation did, we know, oh, so well we know, and the images won't get erased from our memory. Our government will come to an end, I'm sure. But it will come at our hands. Until then we compromise."
