    Assad kills civilians. The opposition kills civilians. And how does it matter how those civilians are killed? So Assad may kill civilians with helicopters or other superior forms of technology and the opposition may kill civilians with roadside bombs or simple bullets. The bottomline is that civilians are killed by both sides, the means to kill the civilians are the only things that may differ.

    That's like saying a person who stabs you with a knife is a better person than someone who kills you with a drone strike. That's essentially your argument and it's a flawed and shoddy argument.

    I am not defending Assad or the opposition. All destruction of innocent life is gruesome. Apparently you don't feel the same way.
