    And it sounds like the opposition and the FSA are losing ground. So there may not be a lot like previously persumed.

    That said, they are resorting to car bombing journalists.

    Edit: Sounds like that it was targeted not at RT but government building....

    For some reason I don't think journalists were their intended target.

    1000 well organized troops with heavy equipment can easily crush 10,000 unorganized militia men with light weapons + 100,000 unarmed demonstrants.

    That said, they are resorting to car bombing journalists.
    Well Assad's regime was opensly sponsoring terrorism for decades and preaching that its fine thing to do.

    It seems that both sides are getting equipment. The fact though that the FSA sounds unorganized is the problem and yes, they can be crushed if that is the case

    I wonder if the saying "two wrongs do not make a right" still holds true today?

    The only modern equipment in rebels hands we seen so far is Metis-M from Syrian army stocks.

    I did not say its right, on contrary I hope than maybe now regime will understand, that nothing justifies terror.

    Why is it that only Russian media has any access to tour the devastation in Syria? Barbara Walter's interview with Assad doesn't count. Assad himself said they're approving journalist visa's to "anybody" and yet it seems only media from countries that support him are allowed through. I get the feeling the only reason they're allowed in is because of the pro-Assad spin.
    Because Putin's tame pets will say what they are told too.
