I've been following Syria very closely for a long time now. It is always dangerous, but at the moment is seems particularly dangerous. Mainstream media reporting is all one voice against Assad, and Putin, and Iran, and Hezbollah. Here are some sources from the other side if you are interested and these aren't already on your radar.
