Deadly Syria Protests: Highest Death Toll Reported as Syrian Forces Fire Into Crowd


An end to torture, killings, arrests and violence against protestors;
Independent investigations into the deaths of protesters;
The release of all political prisoners;
And the reform of Syria's constitution, including a two-term presidential limit.

It may sound far-fetched and fanciful, but not long ago the idea that dictators in Tunisia and Egypt would be vanquished by a few weeks of demonstrations -- or that Moammar Gaddafi would be wondering how to counter a no-fly zone, a rebel militia, and U.S. predator drones -- would have seemed far-fetched, too.
