You are a sympathizer of a group that backed Russian tanks in Hungary 
and Chinese tanks in Tienanmen Square. So no wonder you are trying to 
figure out ways to make the opposition to al-Assad look bad. If there 
were no Jihadists in Syria, you'd still find ways to justify the status 
quo in Syria.

It never fails to amaze me how people with rebellion flowing through 
every capillary in their body when it comes to the US ruling class can 
turn into what amounts to worshippers of authority in countries like 
Syria, China or Iran. They become the counterparts of FOX-TV, which I 
suppose outlets like rt.com and www.presstv.ir amount to.

I guess I need to reread Junius Scales's memoir.
