[quote:Newshunter:MV8yMDY1ODA1XzM0NzU4MDI3X0ZFRjMxRjE2] 1359 GMT: BREAKING: According to LBCI News, "Emirates airlines suspends its flights to Damascus until further notice." To be clear, while some may look at this as a political issue, framing it in a political battle between the Gulf States and Syria, it is likely far more significant - with rumors that the FSA has been attacking Assad positions near the Damascus International Airport off and on for days, it's likely that safety, not politics, is the reason for this disruption in service. If other airlines follow suit, it could signal that these airlines believe the airport may be a site of a military battle in the following days. There are more signs that normalcy has been significantly disrupted in Damascus. Despite all the violence, and the sanctions, Damascus has become the business hub of the country, especially since Aleppo has been so heavily disrupted. Today, there are many reports that internet and cell service have been disrupted: Razan Ghazzawi @RedRazan Internet is still cut in most areas in Damascus & its suburbs since 12:30 PM today 29-11-2012 #Syria 29 Nov 12 Did the government cut the internet and cell networks? If so, this is a sign that the government is putting the capital into an emergency footing. http://www.enduringamerica.com/home/2012/11/29/syria-live-coverage-insurgents-take-more-bases-as-damascus-h.html [/quote]
Post-Election, Obama More Willing to Intervene
In July, Syrian rebel lobbyists reported that the Obama Administration had told them they would not be able to intervene in a serious way until after the November election. The voteís over and now the meddling can begin in earnest.
Thatís the message from US officials tonight, who say the president is now considering several options for deeper intervention into the ever worsening civil war, including the possibility of directly arming certain rebel factions.
