Syria's, violence keep continues

President Bashar al-Assad, dictator of Syria, at first wavered between force and hints of reform. But in April, just days after lifting the country’s decades-old state of emergency, he launched the first of what became a series of withering crackdowns, sending tanks into restive cities as security forces opened fire on demonstrators.

Neither the violence nor Mr. Assad’s offers of political reform, rejected as shams by protest leaders, brought an end to the unrest. Similarly, the protesters have not been able to withstand direct assault by the military’s armored forces.

The conflict is complicated by Syria’s ethnic divisions. The Assads and much of the nation’s elite, especially the military, belong to the Alawite sect, a small minority in a mostly Sunni country. 
Syria’s crackdown has been condemned internationally, as President Assad, a British-trained doctor, who had seem inherited iron-handed regime dictator from his father, Hafez al-Assad.

Poverty in Saudi Arabia?

Firas Baqna, Khalid al-Rasheed and Hussam al-Darwisch was arrest because showing the real situation poverty of its own citizen in the rich kingdom of oil, Saudi Arabian. While the wealthy get rich, the building get higher, the life get expensive, there still a lot of Saudi citizen suffer because the income which they get, less then the price of live which they need to pay daily. This could be normal at many country, but not in this rich oil country as Saudi Arabia is one of only a few fast-growing countries in the world with a relatively high per capita income around $25,000 (2011). And specially the case arrested the person who took video to tell the true about what happening, is not a normal thing and its not fair.
