So, why does exactly Reuters repeats after a person who is a mouthpiece of organisation officially recognized as terrorist by US?

Umm, someone who blows up a gas station in the middle of the city IS indeed a terrorist. Why does Reuters feel the need to put the term in quotes and qualifying it by saying that is what the Syrian Govt. calls them. If anyone blew up a gas station in any other city of the world, the press would call it terrorism, without quotes, without having to qualify the statement. It is what it is. Reuters is legitimizing terror by making it seem like only the Syrian Government calls it terrorism.

Also note that reuters discussed the “terrorists” actions for only 3 sentences…then the article goes back to the bombing wednesday and reminds us that it was bombed by governments jets…they only stayed on task with the title of the article for 3 friggan sentences then immediately started their biased reporting for the other side…shameful media standards…

I am an Iranian living close to a revolutionary gaurd base in KEMANSHAH,west of IRAN. And i can see every day military hardwear and young soldiers being shipped to SYRIA. FSA should consider fighting IRAN directly,rather than its henchman ASSAD!!1
