The other Internet monitoring group, Renesys, said more than 90% of the Internet access in Syria was shut down on Thursday. It was not clear who was behind the latest event, but the government has intermittently cut off Internet access several times in the past two years.

That stinks. I'm friends with Syriangirl Partisan on Facebook and she hasn't responded to any posts in the last 3 hours. :(
BTW. She's a great source of the real haps in Syria if she gets back online. She's for governmental reform but strongly against outside intervention.
No outside intervention means you will all live in sufferance forever and nothing will change.
Sure hope she gets back online. And hope that Syrian people are spared more blood shed. The foreign induced implosion has spiraled out of control.
There are news today that we are considering directly arming the 'rebels'.
They are already thru NATO. They are fighting with American made munitions like m-16's, stinger missiles etc. There is even a tank that was seen and reported going thru the boarder at the Bab al-Hawa Border Crossing thru Turkey. Check it out. They obviously didn't make these weapons at a 'rebel camp'. :)
Sorry to hear about your friend @ revnow and i will say a prayer for her tonite. Just as i do for the Syrian children every nite. Sad state of affairs in that country but the kids are the real victims.
The cash registers are already going ka-ching for thr millions being paid to deliver ammo.
THE financials in every euro centri are pushing numbers of how much a loan nation will need to rebuild and what resources and percentages of interest to charge the ones being armed by US and its allies.
NATO only going to suport Hillarys choice of who to support.
No phone, no Internet, no way therefore for the outside world to know what is going on (so it would seem). Sounds like a recipe for genocide to me. Very scary.
