Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is offering no concessions to those demanding his ouster, saying his country is in "a state of real war" and indicating his regime must quash the opposition.
"When we're in a state of war, all of our politics has to be concentrated on winning this war," al-Assad said Tuesday, 15 months after his regime started cracking down on anti-government protesters.
The al-Assad regime has accused foreign media of conspiring against the country and said al-Ikhbaria works to counter the "sinister campaign." But observers say al-Ikhbaria is a mouthpiece for the government's propaganda, refusing to acknowledge the regime's brutal violence on dissidents seeking freedom
While the war of words continues, the outskirts of the Syrian capital are reportedly seeing some of the worst violence there yet.
At least 33 of the 113 people reported killed Tuesday were from the Damascus suburbs of Hameh, Qudsaya and Douma, said the opposition Local Coordination Committees of Syria.
The group said fierce clashes erupted again Wednesday morning between the rebel Free Syrian Army and regime forces in suburban Damascus.
U.S. intelligence officials say the regime and rebel fighters are locked in a "seesaw battle."

This has gotten out of control. We need to stop this madness.
Stop aiding in the propaganda.

That video really put the wind up me for some reason….. And I've watched plenty of their ilk.
I need to do more homework.
What's Libya like now I wonder?
Could "the lie" be so bold?
I realise that this video is the polar opposite of what we get fed from the msm so I'm guessing the truth lies somewhere between the two…… Ahhh the truth, with all this communication and dialogue at our finger tips, it's more elusive than ever.
