This is real opposition, this is a real crackdown. These people roll in with AFVs, machineguns, and snipers and kill protestors. The protestors in Syria know they face the real chance of death, they are brave. I don't know what their final goals are, I don't know if they will win or lose and what they would do if they won. But, I know they are brave.
The OWS people have not and will not face anything like this and yet they still think of themselves are brave.
