Brown Moses Blog curates and analyzes news regarding the Syrian uprising, the wider Arab Spring, and the UK phone hacking scandal. It is written by Something Awful forums moderator Brown Moses. Recent entries include discussion of the increasingly well armed Free Syrian Army, senior members of the Catholic Church criticizing pro-Assad clergy, and a look at the evidence of more sophisticated IEDs being used in Syria.

The blog is beginning to attract attention from professional journalists, including mentions in coverage from The Guardian and The Christian Science Monitor.

Christ, they shot down an attack helicopter.

Generally, when it comes down to people on the ground versus helicopter gunships, I'm going to root for the guys on the ground. What a bloody mess, though.
