This is concerning, if the rumors are true:

Colonel,

In this video members of the FSA throw what they claim is a shabeeh out of a window, I cant confirm or deny if that is the case. Graphic Video

Colonel the following videos that I am attaching I got by simply typing in youtube "execution of a shabeeh",(in arabic). What are the criteria the FSA uses to identify who is a shabeeh and who is not? I have no idea WARNING graphic videos

Slightly off topic. FSA snipers, seems fairly pro. Weapons ID?

Not exactly an atrocity but if nothing else it shows that the losers in the conflict will pay. This time it's the supporters of the Syrian government who went to the wall.

Rebels 'execute' regime loyalists in Aleppo

It may be true that majority of Syrians do not support the Assad Government. Who do they support? Libyan jihadis? Like Iraq, the anti-Assad axis will destroy the country to save it.

Disgraceful.

Who says they're out so save it?

Who says they do have a plan at all except for wanting to see the Assads and Baathists go, somewhere, which probably means them being hanged if they fall into rebel hands.

If they succeed they may just turn Syria into something resembling Lebanon, and its instability may just suck in the neighbours in an attempt to pacify, stabilise or at least influence the place, probably in vain.

Players will be the Turks, Kurds, Iraqis, Iranians, Israel, Russia, France, the US, Saudi Arabia the Quataris and the probably hapless Euros. The place will be a bloody mess (literally) and the Syrian minorities (Alawis, Christians) will be paying the price.
