just found this clip.. Its a fascinating Michael Moore to camera schtick appealing to the Syrian government to give up. This was shot back in May. Needless to say he begins by apologizing for the Bush Administration and the West involvement meddling in the Middle East,  when he finally gets down asking Assad to stop the killing, one still has the impression he doesn’t quite go far enough. The fact the man sees himself as someone of importance is grating enough but for him to seriously think his words in appealing for Assad  to go in the same manner as Botha’s South African is again,  – to avoid the cliche –  making more moral equivalence, a symptom of the Left.

Let there be no doubt, Assad is brutally murdering people in full view of the world and the UN, exactly where are the likes of Mssrs Moore and others protesting on the streets and world condemnation. Where is Chomsky?

According to my sources the Syrian Press attache to the Syrian Embassy of the United States has left his job in the last few hours. This surprising news comes after Hilary Clinton finally lays down the law and tells Assad hes “not indispensable.” We shall see in the next coming hours if stepping down of the Syrian Press representative is a turning point. These are last few tweets from  http://twitter.com/#!/USEmbassySyria (Syrian tweeter feed from their Embassy in the US) But doesn’t reveal too much in indicating more resignations (um defections anyone?)
