15. First of all,

 

why don't you just stop accusing one side of killing 80,000 people in a War. It takes two to tangle. Assad killed 80,000 people is propaganda. None of the statistics can be confirmed, but apparently the Syrian Army and their Allies have gotten the better of the War, by killing over 41,000 of the rebel forces. They are not Assad's people. They are combatants, including traitors,and foreign fighters or Terrorists in his definition.

The rebels have reportedly killed over 24,000 of Assad's forces. They have also killed civilians and Government politicians. They have killed civilians in car bombings and assasinations. There have also been collateral damage in the War with civilian deaths caught in the cross fire between both sides. That is where the figure rises to 80,000.

The bottomline is the people supplying and helping the opposition are responsible for a great number, if not the majority of those 80,000 deaths. If they weren't trying to subversively overthrow the Syrian Government, there wouldn't be 80,000 deaths. If the opposition fighters wouldn't hide their fighters in towns and cities, civilians wouldn't be getting killed in the cross fire. Why don't they just set their little bases or encampments, out side of these towns and cities, if they are really concerned about citizens, instead of using them as human shields? There is plenty of wide space in the countryside of Syria, these rebels can set up their camps.
