Syria Protest Update - How to motivate one's military to follow orders

From Haaretz:
Report: Senior Syria officer assassinated over unwillingness to open fire at protesters
"A senior Syrian military officer was assassinated over his unwillingness to open fire at anti-government protesters, websites linked to Syrian opposition groups said on Monday."

Is this report accurate? Dunno. But it does seem to me that after months of protests and a couple of government overthrows, the remaining Mideast dictators would be working to, shall we say, improve their power-clinging methodology.
