Fine.

But the FSA is not committing war crimes on a massive scale. It came 
into existence to protect civilian populations from being murdered and 
largely performs the same function today as well as fighting to extend 
its influence and control over Baathist-held territory.

If you can't distinguish between lightly armed men trying to defend 
Sunni neighborhoods in Idlib and MIG's firing missiles into apartment 
buildings, you need help.
