Re Syria --- please talk about social media's role in the midst of the civil war in this country. Is the Internet not accessible at present. What about the Neighboring nations---/specially the ones who just went through Arab Spring?

In connection with Russia and China----wethe people (not the countries), should demonstrate and boycott these two nations.
