The Arab Spring is spinning wildly out of control now.  The portion of it gaining to most international attention has to be Syria with its armed rebels beginning to gain the upper hand over the ruling Asad Regime.  This video shows how the rebels are now gaining the ability to shoot down government helicopters with Anti-Aircraft missles they acquired when they took over military bases.   The video is intense, and only a small portion of what is happening in the country.  Just recently the government shut down internet in the entire country, cutting them off from the world.  What is being seen in Syria is unprecedented in history, and it will be interesting to see if and how it spreads throughout the region.
