    I had to copy and paste your post into Google and discover that there's no mention of comparative scale of war crimes. Most conflicts involve war crimes, and the official UN report of massacres in this conflict show a stark contrast between Assad's use of such and the rebels. We all know who fired the first shot as well.
    President Assad's forces civilian casualties are from the rebels using them as human shields, not them targeting civilians. The rebels on the other hand target civilians.

    UN documentation?

Our military is worth more than that, and our values, such as they are, are worth more than that too. I'd like to think, as would many, that we aren't stuck in the mentality of our thug being better than their thug.
    Fair enough. That has nothing to with discussing international conflicts and who is generally more right than wrong in the conflict.

    The report says rebels frequently use schools as barracks or offices, children have taken up arms to fight and rebels have used them as lookouts.

    No, not at all. I'm saying the sources seem to be hopelessly compromised by political considerations. There's a big difference which you are obscuring in making a blanket statement which doesn't address at all what I have said. There are hundreds, if not thousands of reports, and if you can believe all of them, have at it yourself. I can't make an assessment of the veracity of many of them, and the volume would suggest that either they are all correct, and we're dealing with a bunch of liars, or only some of them are, and we don't know which are, and which aren't. I tend to go with the latter. We don't really know. I don't trust the UN. If you do, then go for it. It's really that simple. You really ought to look at the UN voting record before you go all in with them, but that's your choice. If the evidence was crystal clear, there wouldn't be all this controversy.

    I guess this is the hotel theory of unbiased news. Not very convincing.

    I personally like Russans and Iranians. As to RT news, it's a stinker that most Russians are embarrassed over.

    I wonder if NBC was involved.

    I'm not in the business of discussing who's more right and who's more wrong. I'm in the business of discussing who is right, and who isn't. If you want to equivocate, as I said, have at it. Embrace the red line, and sign up today.

    I'm sure you do, but then I wasn't saying that to you.
