    Man Why do they keep on fighting over what exactly? Sure it is good to revolt and want change ...but it has been over a year and they seem to have a Mexican stand off.And why is the UN countries not doing anything.It helped for Egypt and Iran (hey stop fighting or ( insert nuke country here) we drop the nuke) intervention.Is this tel-ban run country and everyone just watching them blow up themselves?

    Better believe it. The rebels have been capturing a number of military bases. They're in a position to threaten Damascus now.

    News sources reported that they had most of the internet back in about 48 hours.
    Not sure if it was a kill switch or some kind of damage from the fighting.
