    The UN is struggling to agree the terms of a resolution which would impose a 30-day ceasefire in Syria as the death toll in the regime assault on eastern Ghouta climbs to more than 400.

    At least 428 people, including 98 children, have been killed in the aerial offensive on the besieged rebel suburb of Damascus in one of the worst episodes of violence in the seven-year-long war.

    A sixth day of air strikes, including illegal barrel bombs, shelling and rocket fire, continued unabated in the area on Friday. More than 22 medical facilities have been damaged, leaving thousands of injured people unable to access adequate help.

    Does that make Assad/Ru/IRan less murderous?

    Obviously a few hundred is less than a few million.

    If you take into account the death made by those 3 it's equal to higher than American+Brits...
    But since "Knowledge" is limited for your part... I'm not surprised...

    Americans used nukes on Japanese cities, carpet bombing on German cities. What Assadynasty does is tame compared to that.

    U keep comparing total war between two major industrial powers and extermination of helpless population who's only crime is that they refuse to bow to Assad.

    Assad aka Putin aka Khamenai thugs bomb populated town of Douma non stop with unguided munition. Grad rockets, barrel bombs, incendiary bombs. Plain extermination of civilians:

    Jaish Islam imposes sharia in East Ghouta. No freedom for women. That is terrorism. It's no different than what ISIS was doing. It doesn't matter if they do or do not bow to Assad. It matters they are eradicated from East Ghouta so women can have freedom and not have to veil their faces.

    They are free to surrender anytime they want. Hitler didn't have to wait until Berlin was destroyed before putting a bullet in his brain.

    STFU.
    Those were the work of the past generations and not the work of criminals bombing people right now.
    People are dying as we speak. Show some respect, you spineless troll.

    undertakerwwefan is here to tell us that we should worry more about American and British crimes, though interesting that he picks WW2 rather than any of the conflicts or imperial conquests before or since (at a guess he's a big fan of Hitler).

    Regime supporters: "I am horrified by inhumanity and mass murder. Assad and Putin are great guys. Why o why didn't Adolf win?"

    Why Nazis from Charlottesville to Europe love Bashar al-Assad

    Bashar is a socialist. Who built thousands and thousands of free apartment buildings in Syria and made Syria population go from 4 million in 1960 to 20 million in 2010? These days young people in America can't afford houses like their parents did.
