What an enlightening little piece!

Not a word about why these people held a grudge against Al Jazeera.

Why is the story so short??

Maybe reuters doesn’t want you to know about the huge undercurrent of anger at the US backe dictatorship and their state media sponsoring US coups abroad in Syria and elsewhere…

Every other story by reuters carries a context in following paragraphs, but they won’t even tell you what the protestors were chanting!

As expected, bad news for US empire allies is swept under the rug as quickly as possible.

Just like Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait etc… they get a pass.

It is rare you post a comment that doesn’t criticize Reuters. Why are you here?

TheNewWorld – Because he’s obviously paid by the Assad regime to discredit anything that’s even remotely negative about them, and the news services that carry such stories. Many people who comment here (of all sides of the ideological spectrum) have begged him to leave or for Reuters to ban him, but he keeps popping up under different names.

Don’t engage him, it only encourages his diatribes. I used to find him entertaining, now he’s just tiresome and boring.

This will likely trigger his typical blathering response.
