40. A couple words

You may want to do some things to adapt your postings to the expectations of this board. First, wherever possible, if you are going to make specific claims that may be unfamiliar to other members (such as 41,000 rebels killed in the last few weeks) please link to the source of that, even if it's a foreign language site. Most of us have the ability to use Google or another on-line translator.

Second, if you have a lot of points to make, you might want to break them down into shorter individual paragraphs. It's easier to read that way.

Third, please keep in mind that facts carry a lot more weight than opinion, particularly if your conclusions go against the convention. Stick to the facts when there's any doubt.

Fourth, you have the option of being transparent about where you're coming from. It might help us to understand you better if you would tell us where you're posting from, what groups if any you are a part of, etc. That goes for the other interested party on this thread, who I recall has indicated (s)he is Tunisian -- who also posts frequently on this subject.

Thanks for posting - we need to hear more from all interested parties here.
