    Well if the first guy is legit than he is in Lebanon. Back in the days his name was mentioned here and there as a source for situation in Homs by several major media outlets. The maps he linked were also articles in NOW Lebanon Arabic written by him.

    But if both are legit and some fight here will start I am looking forward to Hollis posts.

    thats good to hear that you have good access to the internet. I have been following this conflict closely and i can say in my opinion the country is being besieged by terrorists sponsored by gulf states and the west. Is this true? not to impose but can you tell us your religion? and your views? goodluck my thoughts are with the syrian people.

    More info:

    Syrian troops arrest 4 Turkish fighter pilots in Aleppo

    DAMASCUS, Dec. 31 — Syrian troops arrested four Turkish fighter pilots near a military airport in the northern province of Aleppo, a pro-government daily said Monday.

    The guarding troops of the Koerc military airport arrested four Turkish officers who were trying to sneak into the airport with an armed group, al-Watan said, giving no further details about the fate of the Turkish pilots but saying that the incident came to explicitly implicate Turkey.

    Also in Aleppo, the paper said more than 100 armed men were killed when the Syrian air force bombarded the Finance Directorate in al-Sufaira town, where the armed men had been gathering.

    In the central province of Homs, army units targeted armed groups’ positions in al-Rastan town, killing scores of them, al- Watan said, adding that violence and clashes have renewed in the Yarmouk camp for Palestinian refugees in the capital Damascus between local committees and armed rebels.

    Meanwhile, opposition activists reported shelling on many hotspots nationwide by the Syrian army on Monday.

    France has no choice but to deal with some of them as all the states that produce oil have 'dubious regimes'.

    I really can't understand why the US and other western countries are making the same mistakes all over again. Why for God's sake are western countries supporting extremist Sunny fractions in the Middle East?
    France does not support any extremist Sunny fraction in the ME.

    Maybe not directly, but France already recognized the "Syrian opposition" as the "legitimate representative of Syrian people" (which is itself a joke, since obviously the "opposition" doesn't represent all the Syrian people), while it's not even clear who the "opposition" is, what they really represent and what agenda they have (besides ousting Assad). It looks like that on the ground the strongest "opposition" that is going to win and dictate the future, are actually the Islamist groupings and not the secular pro-democracy ones.

    But in the typical stupid and shortsighted politician fashion (I'm not referring to France specifically here, but the West in general), I guess that anything can be "corrected" with additional bombing. So what if with our (political & financial) help Syria fell to the islamists and become an Al-Qaeda breeding ground, we will just bomb them five or ten years from now, which will magically solve the problem...

    I guess our sneaky pilots were there to steal some of the Syrian high-tech stuff.

    The SNC is not a joke. It's an umbrella of all the diversity of political formations that oppose Assad. They don't have to have other common ground than that.

    There's no evidence to sustain this.

    If France and the West will stay out of it the Islamic states will fill the vaccum. IMO, we should have provided weapons to the FSA from the start. As we did not, Qatar, KSA came in and we see now the result with reinforced Islamic fractions.

    It is quite possible that the airport has some helicopters in storage and they someone to fly them out.

    In such case, the rebels should first take the airfield and then Turkish pilots could fly out the helicopters. But it does not make sense for Turkish pilots to participate to the assault, like in a James Bond film.
