Yep, more lies..

Little eye-openers to the lies they
report
and the truth they suppress
or at least always trying to suppress.
For example.

Lol, any media or source can print an article based on political motive. Specially when we'll known terror groups are the good guys in Syria, expect anything from the media.

Good News today!! Good News!! The general who heads Syria's military police defected and joined the uprising against President Bashar Assad's regime, one of the highest walkouts by a serving security chief during the country's 21-month uprising.
Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz Jassem al-Shallal appeared in a video aired on Al-Arabiya TV late Tuesday saying he is joining "the people's revolution."
Al-Shallal's defection comes as military pressure builds on the regime, with government bases falling to rebel assault near the capital Damascus and elsewhere across the country.
On Wednesday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said government shelling in the northeastern province of Raqqa killed at least 20 people, including women and children.
Dozens of generals have defected since Syria's crisis began in March 2011. In July, Brig. Gen. Manaf Tlass was the first member of Assad's inner circle to break ranks and join the opposition.
Al-Shallal is one of the most senior and held a top post at the time that he left. He said in the video that the "army has derailed from its basic mission of protecting the people and it has become a gang for killing and destruction." He accused the military of "destroying cities and villages and committing massacres against our innocent people who came out to demand freedom."
Thousands of Syrian soldiers have defected over the past 21 months and many of them are now fighting against government forces. Many have cited attacks on civilians as the reason they switched sides.
The Observatory said the shelling in an agricultural area of Raqqa province near the village of Qahtaniyeh killed 20, including eight children, three women and nine others.
An amateur video showed the bodies of a dozen people including children lying in a row inside a room. Some of them had blood on their clothes, while weeping could be heard in the background.
The videos appeared genuine and corresponded to other AP reporting on the events depicted.
Also Wednesday, activists said rebels were attacking the Wadi Deif military base in the northern province of Idlib. The base, which is near the strategic town of Maaret al-Numan, has been under siege for weeks.
In October, rebels captured Maaret al-Numan, a town on the highway that links the capital Damascus with Aleppo, Syria's largest city and a major battleground in the civil war since July.
The attack on Wadi Deif comes a day after rebels captured the town of Harem near the Turkish border. The rebels have captured wide areas and military posts in northern Syria over the past weeks.
Syria's crisis began with protests demanding reforms but later turned into a civil war. Anti-regime activists estimate more than 40,000 have died in the past 21 months.
In another development, Syria's interior minister, wounded in a Damascus bombing, headed home on a private jet Wednesday after treatment in Beirut, airport officials said, despite calls from some Lebanese to put him on trial for Syrian actions in their country.
Mohammed al-Shaar's departure coincided with the defection of the commander of Syria's military police.

But unconfirmed innuendo is so much more effective. If they allowed it in our courts, I'd be a lawyer and not a writer.

Why do you say it propaganda? Give us something that proves the Syrian pilot was not telling the truth, or that the MIG wasn't configured to carry chemical weapons without a pilot.

You're not really up on avionics technology concerning aircraft conversion are you? From your posts, you're not really up on much of anything.

Given the lack of credibility of such reports in past conflicts, it's up to the one making the claim to prove their accuracy. Very simple, really - never put the cart before the horse, especially when the horse has halitosis breath.

Interesting how you've managed to turn logic bass-ackwards. Can you pop a rabbit out of your nose too?

His was a challenge to the veracity of a claim, not the initial claim itself.

There's a sort of chain of custody thingy thing going on here. LOL

Ice cream trucks are a major contributor to childhood diabetes. Don't underestimate their potential as WMD.
