Consider two alternatives :

- Finance guns, soldier training, refugee camps, humanitarian ground
help and political meetings and treaties to make a revolution happens
in a (more or less controled) bloodshed


- Take a strong position to preserve freedom of speech and wider use
of the Internet as a mean to let the people self-organize in a
political process, thus avoiding violent revolutions

What do you think is best ?
