    Syria is seeing some of the worst violence of the 11-month uprising against Bashar al-Assad amid an ongoing international standoff over how to respond. Assad's forces have launched what appears to be one of their fiercest assaults on the flashpoint city of Homs to date. Both the United States and Britain have closed their embassies in the Syrian capital of Damascus and withdrawn diplomatic personnel, citing safety fears. As the crisis escalates, Russia and China are facing criticism for blocking a U.N. Security Council resolution backed by the United States and Arab League calling for a political transition in Syria. To discuss the situation in Syria, we're joined by Patrick Seale, a leading British writer on the Middle East and author of "Asad: The Struggle for the Middle East.” “It's at least a two or possibly a three stage crisis. Internally in Syria, the situation is getting worse by the day,” Seale said. “At a higher level, there is a struggle between the United States on the one hand and its allies, and its opponents like Russia and China. ... Then there's a third level, possibly, of Arab Gulf states like Qatar, for example, even Saudi Arabia behind it, who are obsessed and worried by Iran and they think that Iran might stir up Shiite communities in the region."

              DemocracyNow.org - Syrian troops continue to fire on protesters despite a visit by Arab League monitors to assess the Assad regime’s compliance with a plan to resolve the country’s political crisis. More than 5,000 people have been killed in the nine-month-long uprising. Democracy Now! interviews Bassel, a Syrian activist and filmmaker currently in Damascus, but just back from the city of Homs, where three dozen people were reportedly killed the day before monitors arrived. Speaking from hiding, Bassel says the violence in Homs is threatening a civil war pitting local civilians and Army deserters against the security forces. Also interviewed is Karam Nachar, a U.S.-based Syrian cyber-activist who details how he is working with Syrian protesters via social media platforms to organize and get out images of the protests and the Assad regime's crackdown.
