That's right: fake cities, built in Qatar by Al Jazeera, occupied by hordes of actors, under the direction of filmmakers to create a false impression of what’s happening on the ground in Syria. Or at least that’s the spin.
Or perhaps more accurately, propaganda. As this post from The New York Times mentions, the station that ran the allegations on September 9 is closely tied to the ruling regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
“Addounia TV is owned by Mohamed Hamsho, who is the brother-in-law of Maher al Assad, the commander of Syria’s Republican Guard and the brother of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.”
Still avoiding the question. Who said anything about sirens a few blocks away? We are talking about gunshots here.Given the fact that they were in a speeding car for at least a minute, I'd say they were more than a few blocks away.Anyway, a siren and a gunshot are hardly comparable sounds.Lets stick to gunshots. Now how is it that a shot from say 200 yds(being generous) could sound identical at over a mile, no noticeable decrease in volume, no distortion or degradation at all?
Given the number of shots fired, that was some awful shooting.Not one hit
If the danger was as imminent as the reporters make out there is no way a soldier would remain prone and unflinching with his back to the action. nobody with a will to live would remain that calm egardless of how used they were to the sound of gunfire.
Either the gunfire was totally not a threat to them or it was added later. Either way deceit is in play here.

When a believable sound is matched to a picture there is never any doubt in anyone's mind that the sound is not authentic. If the sound is a shade to fast or slow, it will cause many viewers to think that "something" was not quite right.
Not one viewer, not one critic, not even the scientists who actually developed the (atom)bomb complained about this odd mixture of sounds when they appeared on the TV news in the early 1950s. What everyone heard matched convincingly the picture.

No point arguing about sound without knowing what the surrounding enviroment is like and where it was shot exactly. You know that sounds do bounce of everything they hit?
