    I wrote repeatedly that the Assad regime is terrible and I despise and condemn all dictators of any sort, including of course the Assad regime.  But when you can not argue the facts, you resort to calling people names.   You, not me, support interventions and dictators.   This is obvious by your support for wars like the one that installed a new regime in Libya controlled by different gangs that torture and commit war crimes.     As bad as the Gaddafi regime was.

    My point is very simple.  Assad is terrible, but the Saudis are not any better.   The Saudi-backed rebels do not represent people fighting for freedom.  Among them are islamic fundamentalists and terrorists who massacred civilians there by suicide bombings in the capital of Syria few months ago.   This type of crimes are not any better than the crimes of the Assad regime.

      You attempt to portray equality where it doesn't exist.
      That makes you objectively pro-Assad.

      You repeat Assad's misinformation as though it where the proven truth. That makes you objectively pro-Assad.

      The "new regime in Libya controlled by different gangs that torture and commit war crimes" has register 2.7 voters for elections on July 7th with over 350 political entities and 2500 candidates, including over 500 women.

      You hate that they are finally having elections in Libya won't you?

        Is that repeating Assad misinformation?.   So, is the BBC now an Assad tool?   They are conspiring with Assad?  

        The facts are simple.  Both sides have committed terrible crimes in the Syrian civil war.   And both the Saudi and the Assad regimes are horrible and criminal dictatorships.    It is your problem that you choose to defend one of the two terrible groups, but stop calling others names  because they do not like to defend dictators or dictator-backed rebels, as you do.
