Counting the dead in Syria: how the UN counts

"The figures are based on information coming from the Syrian Center for Statistics and Research, the Syrian Network for Human Rights, the Violations Documentation Center and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights."  So all the sources ore Gulf-funded exile opposition sources.  But even with those figures, it is obvious that most of the dead are combatants although both sides of the conflict (regime and rebels) have shown utter disregard for the lives of civilians.
