“Syrian rebels fired mortars at President Bashar al-Assad’s palace in Damascus on Wednesday but missed…”

Another isolated incident by a few armed gangs. Fortunately most of Syria is at peace and the media are blowing these reports way out of proportion. Mr. Al Assad, aka The Cowardly Lion, may now return to his i-pad, western music and concubines.

Go Insurgents!

Too bad they missed. Symbols of a poorly armed, trained and very uncoordinated rebel army. All the worries about the jihadists taking over all these new rebel governments have not materialized. Not even Morsi in Egypt! He has cautiously walked a pro-western line. A new direction for Muslim Brotherhood? Maybe.

I’m pretty sure the title should read, “another day another massive terrorist suicide bombing in Syria”

Yet another slaughter of innocent civillians by US / Arab dictator backed terrorists.

The international community must condemn these war crimes and horrendous mass murder of civillians by the western sponsored coup.

Reuters your attempt at isolating the Syrian government through repetition of the statement “forces loyal to Bashar Al Assad” is ridiculous…

Let it be known that this is REUTERS terminology only!

When the vast majority of a nations armed forces is still fighting the foreign backed coup, you call them the Syrian forces.

The tiny amount of defectors and deserters which probably number about the same as the foreign Jihadists fighting in Syria do not gain legitimacy, they lose it!

Don’t fall for western propaganda, ‘forces loyal to Assad’ are the vast majority of Syrian forces!

It’s just one of those tricks reuters uses to influence your opinion!!

That’s why they use a whole different set of language for Syria than they do for other situations.

Because they are US corporate state media. Billionaire Baron owned. Undemocratic! And accountable to noone!

Liars and deviants!
