  •  False equivalence. (0+ / 0-)

    The high level defectors getting press conferences, TV interviews can do so because they moved their their families out before hand. the ordinary soldier, the lower levels have families as hostages. Many of them have paid a terrible price for opposing the Assad dictatorship.  Yes, it is a dictatorship of terror and blood, did you know that? He is going after the families of defectors to the opposition wherever he can identify them from cell phone pics or reportage.

    There are thousands of people who now have a blood debt that only Assad's removal and ticket to hell will satisfy.

    OK,  please continue with fair and balanced commenting about how the other side is terrible, too.
