The car bomb in Damascus

There were car bombs yesterday.  In the past, as New TV reported, the Syrian National Council would automatically blame the regime.  This time, the Syrian National Coalition (unlike what the New York Times said today) blamed "whoever is behind it", thus almost admitting that Syrian armed groups were behind it.  300 people were killed and injured in the blasts.  I never knew that car bombs would become popular until the Western governments and media fell in love with Syrian armed groups.
