I wonder what US policy would be if the Mexican gov't was talking about sending 600,000 to take back their "occupied villages" in Texas...

Especially if they are being gunned down by the thousands by Mexican military.

Which is why our State Dept hasn't had much to say about the dead "protestors"

The UN is "deeply troubled" by the IDF shooting the border swarm, but apparently not by the Syrians shooting 100 times more people.

Why 600,000?

Basically, Assad has a blank check to kill as many people as he can manage to before going down. He's trying to extend the line of credit a little by screaming "Look over there!" and pointing at Israel.

Bloody son of a bloody father. The world will be glad to be rid of him.

Why 600,000?

Probably the number of Palestinian "refugees" and their descendants unto the 4th generation that the Syrians have been keeping penned up in camps instead of integrating into Syrian society.

AI and other groups are calling on the UN to bring Syria before the ICC to account for its mass murder of Syrians in the ongoing crackdown. That's not nearly enough, and with cracks possibly beginning to appear in both the diplomatic corps and the military, Assad's days are hopefully numbered.

However, Assad wont go down without significantly adding to the body count. The events in Jigh al Shugur would give him carte blanche to engage in Hama-style massacres in the area as reprisal for going after security forces as his media outlets claim (but which are disputed by the locals who note that military units were defecting and were hit by loyalists, and that the total numbers are less than what was claimed).

There, fixed that.

The whole of the affair was a mess from Syria's perspective. The 'protesters' only motivation, it seems, was the money being offered--essentially being paid to die--walking across their own mine field. The residents of the closest Syrian city also attacked the 'leaders' of the event, for disrupting their lives in a deadly way.

The Syrians are nearing a point where they don't care whether or not they live or die. The Syrian state newspaper is desperately trying to spin this into something. The commemorative days of the 6 Day War are nearly over, and I would be surprised if there are any further significant developments.

It doesn't look like the Arab people are going to be distracted from what is truly inflaming their passions--their own corrupt, tyrannical leaders.
