There’s not even fifty people being shown standing together in this picture. Maybe a couple died, but the buildings didn’t even come tumbling down.

@Domsayshi
The bombing discussed in the story was in Hamas but the picture caption says its in Damascus. Which was a different bombing from the story discussed.

Hillary Clinton and Reuters now are trying to seperate the ‘rebels’ from the terrorists.

But it is impossible!! They ARE the terrorists!

And reuters have supported these terrorists the same as the US has funded and armed them for the last 18 months or more…

The daily suicide bombings in Syria, which kill mostly civillians, are a result of two things:

1) US / arab dictator arms, explosives and money.

2) Reuters unwavering support and pro-coup propaganda.

And so are the kidnappings, the beheadings, the executions, and the torture…

You guys are covered in blood, don’t try to slither away now!

Not after 2 years of cutting and pasting extremist Islamist website quotes!!

You’re terrorist supporters reuters, get used to it…

We can’t celebrate this, unless the men who died were all part of a brigade that went around abusing civilians or something. The soldiers themselves have mothers, fathers, siblings, and is some cases wives and children (now widows and fatherless).

Is there another way out of the conflict? Another way for the Syrian people to get the government they deserve, and for that government to enjoy the respect if not also the heartfelt support of all Syrians?

Another thing reuters… until very recently you have always used language such as: “rebel car bomb”, now I see you using language like “Islamist suicide bomber”…

This is very interesting since Hillary Clinton just a few days ago called for an overhaul of the rebels image. In effect she was calling for a seperation of the Islamists and terrorists from the ‘rebel body’, whatever that is.

Did she call you up personally and tell you to reflect this in your stories? Because your timing is impeccable as usual!

Or is it more subtle than that? Do you recieve encrypted messages like spies?

How on earth do you explain these shifts to your news staff?? I suppose if they want to keep their jobs they will keep their mouths closed!

PLEASE?

I must admit, though, your Assad family handlers are getting their money’s worth!

@gregbrew56 If I was Assad I would have fired him a long time ago for doing such a half assed job. Dedicated as he may be to the line of the state propaganda machine, he has a nasty habit of presenting “facts” that can be disproven pretty much instantly with a tiny bit of research, denying statements he made even though his comment history is up here for all to see, and like his old friend Fromkin, changing his nationality at will in order to seem impartial, although at least Fromkin wasn’t stupid enough to do it in a single paragraph

The only other way in my opinion is for the UN to get involved with a full scale international peacekeeping force as I believe it should have done from the start. Unfortunately the power games played out at the Security Council are going to prevent anything more than a petty symbolic gesture being approved. I have long believed that the first step to world peace is the removal of the UN Security Council, as it is a ridiculous situation, that the five most militarily aggressive countries in the world are the ones with the final say on how the world is run. We look to them to try and bring peace to the world, when all they do is carve up the world into their individual “spheres of influence” and engage in games of brinkmanship with each other. It’s essentially the same situation as existed a hundred years ago and we all know what the result was. Sadly, it seems the only way this will end is for one side to win. The best that we can hope for is that it may end soon and that people will stop getting killed, for the longer this goes on the more polarised Syrian society will become and the harder reconciliation will be
