    hence the FSA.

    Only one side is targeting civilians. Only one side is using helicopter gunships, cluster bombs and artillery.

    Your defense of Assad certainly is persistent but it remains unconvincing:

    This is how the obtain the interviews oyu are promoting:

    You really make me sick Claudius Bombarnac. If you aren't working for Assad, you are missing a paycheck.

      access to information from both sides in this conflict. The facts are that there is more to this story than you post in your one-sided propaganda hit pieces.

      Why don't you explore the nature of the opposition and the various groups that it is made up of? Most don't want the military intervention you are seemingly calling for. From my readings, 100% don't want intervention from the US at all.

      BTW, there are brutal killings by both sides.

      Warning: Very graphic

      Turkish truck drivers accuse rebel fighters of looting

      At Bab al-Hawa, just four kilometres (2.5 miles) from Cilvegozu, Syrian rebels ransacked customs buildings and pulled cargo from the back of stranded trucks.

      Abbasoglu was relatively lucky: he at least got his truck back.

      "All of our trucks were burned," said trader Ali Cengiz, who exports goods to Saudi Arabia via Syria. "The rebel fighters destroyed our trucks during the clashes."

      Ali Celik, who runs a road haulage company, looked over the border into Syria, but he did not hold out much hope for his merchandise. His trucks were stranded at Bab al-Hawa, he said.

      "We sent tow-trucks to retrieve our vehicles but we have received no information so far," he said.
