Yes, I believe they do have "missile weaponry."
That said, you find me a 'trained eye' without an agenda in Syria and then we'll talk, maybe.
Really?! What else weaponry do they have? With that kind of firepower i wouldve thought theyd use it on the passing by jet than waste it on a civilian building, don't you reckon?
Weren't there observers in Syria from the international community, what did they say?

On 26 January 2012, the New York Times reported Western intelligence officials expressing concern that Chalabi was working with the leading opposition group in Bahrain, Al Wefaq National Islamic Society. A French intelligence official said,“When we hear that some members of the opposition are in touch with Hezbollah or with shady figures like the Iraqi Ahmed Chalabi, of whom we think he is acting on behalf of Iran, then this worries us”. The connection between Chalabi and Al Wefaq was acknowledged by Jawad Fairooz, secretary general of Wefaq and a former member of Parliament in Bahrain.

So, apparently Bahrain's opposition makes Washington insiders nervous, while Syria's makes them all warm and fuzzy inside.

Ongoing massacres
More than 100 people were shot, stabbed or possibly burned to death by government forces in the Syrian city of Homs, a monitoring group said on Thursday.
The Observatory said women and children were among the 106 people killed by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad forces who stormed Basatin al-Hasawiya, a poor district on the edge of Homs on Tuesday.
The town of Houla in Homs province was the scene in May 2011 of the killings of 108 people, including nine children and 34 women, which UN monitors blamed on the army and pro-Assad militia.
Still posting lies from your terrorist sources??
