    IRAQ THE MODEL: Syrian Protesters Burning Iranian and Russian Flags (Updated)

    I've followed this blog for some time and am impressed with the viewpoint of these two Iraqis and their fair reporting.

    Syrian Protesters Burning Iranian and Russian Flags (Updated)
    Through decades we saw protesters within the Middle East burning the flags of both America and Israel as these countries were believed to represent the “enemies of the people.” For the first time, we see protesters burning the Russian and Iranian flags and not the American and Israeli flags. Are we watching the redefinition of the “enemies of the people” within the Middle East?

    The first video shows protesters in Syria burning the Iranian and Russian flags. The second video shows a protester holding a handwritten sign written in Russian and Arabic saying to the Russian leadership that the Syrian people want their freedom.

    Update: Today the Hizballah flag was burned in Syria with the protesters chanting No to Iran, No to Hizballah.

    If these Syrian protestors are burning Iranian and Hezbollah flags they are heading in the right direction.

    I hope protesters are not agents paid to spread propaganda justifying why we are in the Middle East, since we keep looking for justification for our dictatorial acts in the Middle East.

    What's this "we" shit? You've made it quite clear your allegiance is not to the United States.

    Iran and Russia both back the Syrian government.

    The people will go back to burning American and Israeli flags once this internal revolt is settled.
