"Those of us who oppose imperial war must not fall into the trap of 
supporting one side or the other. I say this because there is a growing 
tendency for those in what is considered the western Left to either side 
with the Syrian regime or with the rebels. In the case of those who 
support the former, there is a tendency to minimize and even dismiss the 
murderous tactics of the regime’s military and even applaud the Syrian 
regime in hyper nationalist terms; in the case of those who support the 
rebels (usually only the democratic forces in its composition), there is 
a strong tendency to overemphasize the brutality of the Syrian military 
and minimize or not even mention the brutal excesses of the rebel forces."

What brutal excesses of the rebel forces are you referring to?
