[Marxism] Media coverage of Syria gets even more absurd

Almost unbelievable (but all too believable). AP not only reports the absurd
claim that it was the Syrian government that employed suicide bombers to
kill its own security forces, but reports it ABOVE and MORE PROMINENTLY than
the Syrian government claim that it was the rebels who were responsible.
They then continue to report on the assault on Homs, where the only hint
that there is an actual TWO-sided battle going on (and not just a
"government assault") is the claim that the population there is "restive."
Yes, "restive" and well-armed.
