CNN Pro Bahrain Regime News Network Nic Robertson is just back from Syria and claims that Syrian President Assad is playing to win, no matter the human cost.
Nic Robertson Claimed in the Video.
"Assad hasn't fallen because his government is still behind him, his military behind him." This is one party system that has kept his family in power for decades.
There a definitive economic divide that is becoming visible, that's because there has been a greater uprising in poorer neighborhoods.
Because they wanted change more then anyone else.
I think there are Radical Islamist groups taking the advantage of this prosperously, like al qaeda that the situation in Sryia that are exploiting to there advantage.
Nic Robertson has forgotten to mention to the general viewers is that the majority of Syrians are still with Assad. If the majority of Syrians weren't still with Assad, then Assad would have been driven out of power by the majority of Syrians who really wanted change and freedom, however CNN like always is
CNN has been pushing the narrative line in which CNN portrays the Free Syrian Army as the good side while pointing at Assad and the Syrian military, the Syrian Arab Army as Assad, forces pointing them as the axis of evil to the general audience.
Nic Robertson tries the best in this CNN self interview to try and make the viewers believe that the only Islamist groups that are in Sryia just simply Al Qaeda. While the reality on the ground is been ignored by the mainstream news outlets, 90% of the Fighters in the Free Sryian Army are largely Foreign Islamist fighters within the FSA and have been since 2011.
Nic Robertson has been trying his hard in defending the CNN narrative and its view of the Free Syrian Army, CNN trying to persuade the general audience maintaining the narrative that the Syrian Opposition and the Free Syrian Army haven't and aren't committing any war atrocities.
As in every CNN reports you never see nor, read in where CNN blames the FSA for any of the attacks inside Sryia the Global Mainstream News Outlets want to maintain the narrative which is that the Free Syrian Army are the Freedom Fighters and they are not the terrorists.
As always the Guardian colleague Mona Mahmood he has interviewed a terrorist FSA commander who is most doing all of the job in Sryia, Aleppo. Of course the comical Mahmood wants us westerns to know that there are civilians in Aleppo fighting along side the FSA.
Even though another Guardian report,reported and admitted that 70% of the population are with Assad.
"There are many battles are going on with Syrian army in different districts in Aleppo. The mujahideen were able to attack [the Syrian army's] Battalion 46 which is considered the death battalion [because of its aggressive reputation].The [rebel] fighters were able to progress in al-Arqoub, Maysaloon, Abdulla al-Jaberi square, Hamdaniya and Jamiliya. All the fronts are fighting now in Aleppo. Fighting is getting very tough now.The Syrian army is using planes and barrels of explosives to strike all the districts in Aleppo. They want us to lose people's support.The battle is still going on. We do not have the total figure for casualties, but I know that many tanks have been destroyed and many Syrian soldiers were killed, in addition to the destruction of many army sites.I know a martyr of Suqur al-Sham brigade was killed yesterday. We also have a few wounded.Our main problem is the shortage of ammunition. Our fighters are fighting with almost empty Kalashnikovs. They have only a few magazines [of bullets] but they have great belief in their cause. They are ready to fight to the death.We have more than 450 mujahideen in Aleppo now, some of them are defected soldiers, others are civilians believe in the revolution.We are an Islamic organisation. We want to implement sharia after the liberation. All our mujahideen are fighting now under the command of our leader Mustafaf Abdullah.
This is not the first time that the Mujahideen were mentioned upon a western news outlet.The most important achievement so far in the battle is the progress in Abdulla al-Jaberi square – it is the centre of Aleppo. It has the branch of the Ba'ath party and a few security headquarters.There were ferocious battles in Salehaden and al-Ameriya and al-Sukari. It is a guerrilla war. The Syrian army would come forward 10 metres, we would move forward 50 metres and then if we need to pull back, we pull back."
