After Egypt, will it be Jordan (in which case we might see a Palestinian State created very soon) or perhaps Syria? Why not Lebanon?

According to israellycool, the Syrian dictator is about to see mass protests against the rule of President Bashar Al-Assad. The problem for the Syrian protesters is TV cameras. There are far less foreign journalists in Damascus and I wonder if they and their cameramen would be willing or have the stomach to risk all to provide coverage for the international media from this part of the world?

Then there's the question of whether the international media would be interested anyway. I mean I can't see the BBC cheerleaing for the removal of Assad in the way they've been doing in Cairo and Alexandria against Mubarak this week. The fact that Assad is more corrupt and more of a butcher than Mubarak ever was (and I'm not saying he's a nice guy at all) says more about the media than it does about Assad.
