gee i wonder what side reuters backs? they mention every civilian killed by government forces but forget to mention the beheadings and ultra-violent things the rebels have been doing…I can understand reporting on events that happen in other countries, but to cheerlead for the side that is trying to overthrow the government is about as unjournalistic as you can get…

@sedievalve-
you forget whose these journalists are; for the most part they are muslim-anarchists. As in typical ignorant islamicists who oppose any government that is not the caliphate. Reuters in Iraq,pakistan, fghanistan, yemen, etc is always on the side of anti government forces and only temporary aligned with western isses when there is funding.

proof: how many Reuters “reporters” end up dying because they are embedded with terrorists/rebels.

I’m an American and I’m not crazy about Assad or his father before but I fear these “rebels” more. Look at Egypt.

Frankly, I wish my government would stop supporting any side, mind it’s business and left these people solve the issue for themselves.

Mr. Al Assad, aka Cowardly Lion, can be awarded the biggest idiot of the year award. His father never had problems of this size. If the man would have given token democracy and avoided shooting his own people, he likely would have avoided the uprising. He did everything right to galvanize an opposition and encourage fighters into his country wage jihad. On top of all this, his security is so bad the rebels are able to bomb one of his main headquarters and killed many of his top men. The man deserves the fate that is coming if only because of the way he has handled this conflict.
Happy New Year Idiot!

Reuters should do us all a favour and replace all occurances of “rebel activists” with “rebel propagandists”.

Thats just a temporary setback for the rebels but wait until Damascus comes into play. It will become a heap of ruin just as the bible foretells!Assad is dead in the water already so its a matter of time. Then watch even after that when Russia attacks anyone who gets in Assad`s way!
