    Like I said you were shown the last time.....you should have kept that link if you had some dispute with it. I don't recall what thread we were in. So that's on you.

    I don't have to prove a negative. You do. Like I said.....when you can manage to come up with something then get back with us on it. You know we will check it out.

    It's not a negative. You made a specific claim. You have no source.

    Nah, that would be you.....nor do you ever have anything to validate what you think you know. Now myself....I have something that validates all the Death tolls aren't on Assad. You on the other hand got nothing.

    U.N. report, new death toll breakdown highlight potential complexities of arming Syria rebels.....

    The commission's report to the Human Rights Council on violations in Syria's conflict accused both sides of committing war crimes. In an apparent message to European countries considering arming Syrian rebels, the report warned that the transfer of arms would heighten the risk of violations, leading to more civilian deaths and injuries.

    "War crimes and crimes against humanity have become a daily reality in Syria where the harrowing accounts of victims have seared themselves on our conscience," the report said. "There is a human cost to the increased availability of weapons," it added.

    "The U.N. Commission accusing both sides of war crimes confirms the U.S. and European Union's worst fear -- that the fighting has gotten so brutal that it becomes difficult to send help," notes CBS News foreign affairs analyst Pamela Falk.

    There are no independently verified figures available on how many people have been killed in the two-year-plus civil war, or on their identities. The United Nations says at least 70,000 have died, but the Observatory, which claims to receive information from a network of about 5,000 contacts on both sides of the fight inside Syria, told CBSNews.com on Tuesday that the death now stands at 94,786.

    According to the numbers gathered by the Observatory -- which has been and remains an organization sympathetic to the Syrian opposition -- 44 percent of that total is made up of official Syrian government military and security forces as well as unofficial regime supporters.

    That figure stands in sharp contrast to inferences from Assad's many international opponents, including U.S. government officials, who have suggested the majority of the deaths have been inflicted by the regime's military upon opponents and non-combatant civilians.

    According to the Observatory tally, the Assad regime's armed backers have suffered more casualties than any other group during the war, with 41,786 killed. Non-combatant civilians, according to Observatory founder Rami Abdurrahman, account for 35,757 of those killed since the beginning of the conflict. By contrast, Aburrahman told CBSNews.com that 14,777 rebel fighters had been killed.

    Opposition activists have claimed more than six instances when regime forces used chemical weapons.

    The report, covering the period from mid-January to mid-May, accused both sides of committing war crimes. On the government side, the report accused government forces and affiliated militia of committing torture, rape, forcible displacement and enforced disappearance. On the rebel side, the report accused armed groups of carrying out sentencing and execution without due process, as well as committing torture, taking hostages and pillaging.

    But it said violations and abuses by the rebels "did not, however, reach the intensity and scale of those committed by government forces and affiliated militia."

    "A dangerous state of fragmentation and disintegration of authority prevails in areas under anti-government armed groups control, despite attempts to fill the vacuum left by the withdrawal of the state through creating local councils," it said.....snip~

    Nice try ECO .....to get around CBS but I doubt you can. That was what the percentage looked like at 70k. More of Assads people have been killed since then.

    Now as far as the latest totals. Even basic Wiki could handle that for a general figure.

    Estimates of deaths in the Syrian civil war, per opposition activist groups, vary between 83,175[1][2] and 106,425.[3] On 24 July 2013, the United Nations put out an estimate of over 100,000 that had died in the war.[4]

    I should have known.....as usual you didn't know what you were talking about with this issue.

    It's CBS reporting on findings by The Observatory.

    The UN has total numbers, nothing to back your claim.

    It's not hard to "get around" CBS when they're reporting on 1 person's blog.

    The funny thing is that you would present a blogger as CBS - that's pathetic.
