lack of credibility and Western media on Syria

This is what is quite amazing in Western (and Saudi and Qatari) media representation and misrepresentation on Syria. They provide a daily tally of how much the regime has killed: they report that there were severe clashes in such and such a place and that the regime killed some 80 Syrians. But they never ever account for the killing by Syrian armed opposition groups and gangs.  What are they telling the readers? That all the missiles, rockets, car bombs, grenades, bullets, and knives of the armed groups are harmless and that it does not kill people, except a few Syrian soldiers and shabbihah? Are you kidding me?
