Did you see this???? I remember months ago a whole town executed - every man, woman and child (maybe a tiny handful of survivors), the claim was the gov side killed them. Truth was the “rebels” executed tham all, I think they were the “wrong” kind of muzzies. And of course claimed Assad’s guys did it.

If I had time I’d post the below as an article. Just no time...

A graphic video recently posted to YouTube appears to show Syrian rebels forcing a child to behead an unarmed prisoner. The footage has left many questioning whether foreign aid will end up in the hands of Islamist extremists and terrorists.

The video shows a child cutting a bound prisoner’s head off with a machete. Militants then display the man’s severed head while chanting “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great.”

It’s the latest in a string of especially grisly incidents, which have become more common in recent months. On Monday, rebels killed 13 soldiers during an ambush of an army unit in a strategic northern town, activists reported.

Syrian warplanes later bombed the town, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Both sides have played a role in the deaths of over 40,000 people since the uprising against President Bashar Assad began in March 2011.

In every report involving live interviews and any comprehensive footage you can see refugees running away from “freedom fighters” toward the government held areas.
And every report blaming Assad forces (which is for some reason dominate media space) usually consist typical jihadi IED ambush videos named a “government airstrike” and cites from “unknown rebel leader” on how bad Assad is. Both journalists and rebels aren’t busy to explain how they are manage to record an airstrike filming exact location of explosion for a minute before alleged bomb fell and a minute after. Why there are “allah akbar” screams at background is another question.

That is what made my opinion about this conflict. It is not looks like Syrians are about to keep their flawed but still some kind of republic but I wish them best luck in their efforts to keep this rotten green plague away from takeover.
