THIS IS MY COMMENT ON PHIL GIRALDI'S POST AT THE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE ON OUR EFFORTS TO BRING DOWN THE ASSAD REGIME. ( Edited slightly for context)
There is something peculiar going on here. All the footage of atrocities are attributable to the resistance. All the footage I’ve seen have featured a body or two, the sound of small arms fire and people running down the street. Doesn't anyone in the resistance know how to use a camera in aid of his own cause?
This struggle has been going on for months and the media all claim that they can’t do any coverage because they are prohibited from doing so by the Syrian authorities. So we’re meant to believe that the BBC, CNN etc, can’t smuggle a single undercover Arab journalist with a covert mini-cam into the biggest story of the moment. I believe the technical term for this is bullshit.
Assuming that the figure really is between 3-4000 casualties, doesn’t this figure seem a bit low? We are told that the regime is ruthless and fighting for it’s life. Yet they only kill a relatively small number of people each week. Of course, civilians gunned down in the street can’t help but gain our sympathy, and rightly so. But the numbers do not reflect the gravity of the narrative.
After Assad has been driven from power, the murder of the Syria’s Christians will get little or no coverage by our concerned and humanitarian press. And they will definitely not be televised on FOX or MSNBC.
