Bag’s Take-Away:
The final pic in a Newsweek photo gallery showing posters of Assad. If the pictures are pretty random, this one requires a pause. Just a random wire hanging in the foreground, it’s suggestive of a noose. Call it photographic wishful thinking?

Syrians took to the streets in large demonstrations in several cities Tuesday to back Mr. Assad, who has been under fire from protesters since mid-April)
