I guess "hey they are eight times more likely to be assholes!" is a kind of argument for blowing shit up...though not the greatest
At least eight massacres have been perpetrated in Syria by President
Bashar Assad's regime and supporters and one by rebels over the past
year and a half, a U.N. commission said Wednesday.
The commission's probe highlights the worsening pattern of violence
against civilians, including executions and hospital bombings, as the
government battles to retake lost territory from the rebels, including
Islamist foreign fighters who also have carried out war crimes.
"The perpetrators of these violations and crimes, on all
sides, act in defiance of international law. They do not fear
accountability. Referral to justice is imperative," says the report by
the U.N. commission investigating human rights abuses in Syria.
The report updates the commission's work since 2011 to mid-July,
stopping short of what the United States says was an Aug. 21 chemical
weapons attack on rebel-held areas that killed hundreds of civilians.
