The Syrian president has made a defiant speech blaming foreign interference for the anti-government uprising in his country which began last March.
In a televised speech on Tuesday, he accused the Arab League of hypocrisy for lecturing Syria on democracy and reform. However, he said his country would not “close the doors” to an Arab-brokered solution to the crisis as long as it respected Syria’s sovereignty.

Syrians are the best.
This is a clip from a protest yesterday night, October 20th. Protestors gathered in Homs to celebrate for Libya (with fireworks!). The sign that is zoomed in on says, Gaddafi is gone and your turn has come, Bashar.
Solidarity for Syria.
