Geopolitical musings through a progressive lens …by Matt Eckel and Jeb Koogler

And As Their Desperation Grows . . .

I recently co-published an article in The Huffington Post about the views of Syrian revolutionaries on the issue of international intervention. Drawing our data primarily from Arabic social media sources, we make the following argument:

As the regime has continued its repression and as the poorly armed Free Syrian Army (FSA) has proven unable to protect the population, opinion among revolutionaries has shifted markedly — from little support for any type of foreign intervention during the spring of 2011 to widespread advocacy for some of the most aggressive options on the table.

Hope it’s of interest to folks.
