According to a STRATFOR source with links to the Syrian regime, Syrian President Bashar al Assad is outlining plans to prevent protests from spreading into the country. Security forces have been placed on full alert to quell disturbances as soon as they occur, preventing them from becoming mass demonstrations. The source, whose information has not been verified, also claims that al Assad has decided to remove Prime Minister Mohammad Naji al-Otari from the Cabinet and put a number of members and top officials on trial for abusing the public’s trust, a decision to deflect a popular uprising. Meanwhile, a Facebook page that boasts some 25,000 supporters, many of whom are in exile, has called for mass protests in Syria, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Australia to demand the removal of al Assad. Thus far, the Facebook-organized protests have failed to gain traction.
