Western media's love affair with car bombs in Syria

I never thought that car bombs are legitimate and accurate weapons of destruction and murder until I started reading US news accounts of car bombs by armed rebel groups in Syria.  Look at the New York Times:  "Also on Monday, the Nusra Front, an Islamist group allied with Al Qaeda in Iraq that Washington has declared a terrorist organization, posted a statement online taking responsibility for a bombing a week ago at the headquarters of a pro-government militia in Salamiya, in Hama Province. The group said at least 42 people were killed."
