Eyes on Syria
Awareness (in the U.S.) of the current situation in Syria has seemed quite limited to me (though I watch little TV news, so perhaps I'm incorrect on this). I've seen some on the Left express concern about focusing attention on Syria, feeling that this might contribute to the potential for U.S. military intervention (ala Libya). Though I understand this perspective, I do think that awareness should be elevated, and attacks by Syrian government forces on Homs appear to have greatly escalated Thursday.
Twitter has been a great source of firsthand information. In this regard, @EatingMyPeas curates and retweets much useful information on Syria, as well as Bahrain and Egypt (tweets including links to photos, livestreams, videos, etc.).
