How long is it going to take the rest of the world to stop wasting time, and create a no-fly zone? The Free Syrian Army is gaining strength by the day, as more of the regime's soldiers defect; however, they've been forced to abandon their vehicles, since they don't have air cover. Grounding al Assad's air force would be the most worthwhile thing the Arab Leage and NATO could do to help in the struggle to topple his dictatorship.
I apologize in advance if any of my updates turn out to be wrong.
Supposedly this is an anti-government demonstration (as described in the video and twitter) in the Mezzeh neighborhood, 17 minutes from the center of Damascus.
