Shambles: 'Syrian Voters Non-People for the West' - Guardian

Syria has successfully held a referendum on a constitution, but been hit with new sanctions by the EU anyway. Neil Clark, a journalist and contributor to Britain's Guardian newspaper talks to RT from London. Guardian journalist: Great day for Democracy in Syria - but West doesn't want democracy in Syria.

Although there are some reservations against the Assad reforms they are a huge step forward. With each step forward it becomes easier to enact further change.

Pay attention to what is being said here. There is a huge risk of civil war and an Iraq style outcome. Although difficult, following the path of slow change is sometimes better in the long run. >Is the death of hundreds of thousands of Syrians worth the price of rapid regime change - where we might very likely see extremist elements take control ?
