Are you telling me that the rebels don't operate among the civilian population - because you know they do. I'm not absolving Assad at all, I'm just saying that you can't measure this as if the rebels are out on an open field free of civilians, and the Syrians targeted the civilians anyway. That's not happening. You know this.

    There is no point.

    8 massacres by Syria regime and 1 by rebels since April 2012, U.N. war crimes report shows - CBS News

There is no one for the US to support, legitimately. And YOU, you dismiss the UN as irrelevant when they say something that conflicts with your meme, and quote them when they say something you like.

    You do that, not eco.

    What eco posted was something that the UN has officially documented. You have news reports, not based upon published UN documentation.

I choose the latter. The opportunity to effect a positive outcome in Syria passed a couple of years ago. We lost this round, and so did Syria as a result.

    How do you know Assads forces always do that? As far as I recall some of the boys originally clothed in those uniforms refused orders to kill civilians and set up the FSA.

    I haven't denied anything the UN has documented, not even the atrocities by the rebels. And whatever could you be talking about, I quote the UN regularly!

    So you accept that 7:1 civilian massacres have been conducted by Assad and not the rebels? How do you rationalise that with the narrative that Assad is a necessary evil?
