Except that the "jihadists" have never deployed artillery in the 
indiscriminate fashion that Assad has used his air force. When a single 
hospital in West Aleppo came under fire, there were ten thousand 
articles denouncing such inhumanity but not a single one about all the 
hospitals that had been leveled to the ground in East Aleppo. If you 
have trouble grasping this, I suggest you read the Zionist press on 
Hamas's rocket attacks on Sderot. As is almost universally the case, the 
"anti-imperialist" press can figure this out when it comes to Gaza but 
not Syria. Too bad that Chris Slee reflects this sort of bad faith.
