Super Syrial

U.S. and French ambassadors traveled alongside hundreds of thousands of protesters in the streets of Hama, Syria.

The demonstrations, which have erupted throughout the cities and towns all over the nation, are unified in calling for an end of President Bashar Assad's regime.

Since the start of the revolt nearly 4 months ago, crowds continue to accumulate in size and amplify their disdain for the current state of the Government.  The central city of Hama has become a focal point for the protestors, and the Ambassadors' visit has only strengthened the community's resolve.

Not surprisingly, the Syrian Government condemned U.S. Ambassador Robert Ford, stating that the visit was unauthorized; whose purpose was deliberately inciting further conflict in the already unstable Arab nation.

Considering Syria's close ties with Iran, it is no surprise that tensions are capricious and irrational.
Victoria Nuland, U.S. State Department spokeswoman defended the activists in Syria, as well as the U.S. Ambassador, claiming that Ford "spent the day expressing our deep support for the right of the Syrian people to assemble peacefully and to express themselves."
