A ‘growing’ radical presence…… staggering!

There are literally thousands of videos on youtube that any one of us can look up at any time, they make up almost the entire cache of documentation from the ‘opposition’ – and they are ALL RADICAL!!!

Every single video shows masked young men in full Islamic headress armed to the teeth screaming ALLLAHU AKBAR!!!!!

EVERYBODY knows this!!!

How is this in any way NOT an Islamic radical???

If we were to ask ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE… in the west to paint us a picture of what an Islamic terrorist looks like, they would draw the guys in those videos.

The ‘opposition’.

The uprising has been extremist from the very start Reuters and you absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt have known it all along!

There were bombings every day more than 6 months ago…

You have just outright REFUSED to report it, and now you are trying to ‘phase’ us gradually into thinking it is “becoming” extremist.

Because ‘the opposition’ as you call them is so utterly fragmented and extremist, you know that you won’t be able to keep it a secret for much longer.

You absolute liars!

President Obama’s cowardice to act a year ago has cost the Syrian people dearly .. it is embarrassing to hear the State Dept continue to mouth support of the Syrian people .. Secretary Clinton may want real action to support them but if she can’t get the cowards in the White House to act before their election she should consider just keeping quiet ..

@Austell…yes, because youtube is such an objective and authoritative resource for what is REALLY going on in Syria. Has the possibility ever struck you that those videos have left you with a perspective that is just as biased as the one Reuters has painted?

And again, as you continue to troll every Syria related article on Reuters you have yet to address the efficacy, or lack thereof, of Assad’s tact of bombing his own people. For the sake of argument I will concede your assertion that those driving this uprising are “ALL RADICAL!!!”…that does not change the fact that the Assad regime has continued a bombing campaign that has killed ten of thousands of his own innocent civilians AND has yet to quell this uprising.

As I have said before, even conceding your assertion, it is apparent to me that Assad needs to change his tact as it will eventually be his downfall; the composition of the opposition forces is secondary to the safety of civilians in the eyes of the world community.
