I still have not fixed the problem that many have complained about: that only a few posts are displayed at a time on this blog. Someone should help me; this is a one person operation and I don't have resources to hire staff, damn it. (If I do, i would have redesigned this old format that is now boring me). I tried everything and it has not worked.

"Free Syrian Army fighters prepare to launch mortars towards Hanano Barracks, which is controlled by forces loyal to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad, from Aleppo's Karm al-Jabal district October 30, 2013. REUTERS/Saad Abobrahim (SYRIA - Tags: CIVIL UNREST CONFLICT)"
But obviously there is an Al Qaeda flag on mortar. This is not a mistake I think, since it has sent by the Reuters correspondent in the area. So he should know the group that he attached himself.
The same bias was witnessed when FSA&Al Qaeda linked groups carried out a joint assault on Mingh Airbase in north of Aleppo. Reuters again published the photos of Al Qaeda flags in the airbase with the caption of "Islamist flags in Mingh"... And last week, when Al Nusra and FSA groups invaded historical christian town in Homs countryside, the reportings mentioned that its rebels that took control of the town and not mentioned the role of Al Qaeda linked groups.
But when a war crime is exposed, the MSM worked hard to identify the groups name by name and usually conceals their links with FSA. Or just blame the crimes on "extremists"..."

" "Qatar supports, Saudi Arabia supports, some rich guy wants to do jihad with cash supports," explains Marwan, his gaze resting on a wall featuring an array of black bandannas and baseball-style caps. "And they come from all over, Libyans, Moroccans, Jordanians. They all want to do jihad in the name of God." "

"Hundreds of al-Qaeda recruits are being kept in safe houses in southern Turkey, before being smuggled over the border to wage "jihad" in Syria, The Daily Telegraph has learned. The network of hideouts is enabling a steady flow of foreign fighters - including Britons - to join the country's civil war, according to some of the volunteers involved."
