And that video was released under 24 hours ago.
Meanwhile, a car bomb exploded in Qatana, which is near the Syrian capital of Damascus. This next car bomb has cost the lives of at least 16 people, including women and children, while 25 other people have been injured due to the explosion of this car bomb by the Western-backed “Free Syrian Army”.
According to SANA, the Syrian state news agency, seven children are among the victims of this car bomb that was located in a car near a Syrian school in Qatana. Already on Wednesday a series of explosions hit the Syrian village Aqrab and has cost the lives of at least 125 people.
What you will be shown now is so cruel that it will make you sick. Therefore, a warning to all.
In the video below you can see how the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) terrorists get a child to behead a handcuffed man with a machete who is lying on the ground.
The head is then shown to the camera while they’re shouting “Allahu akbar!” – one can further see more corpses with severed heads.
This recording should be shown to all supporters of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) who still believe that these are good “rebels” and that they only want a democratic transition in Syria and that we should support them and supply them with weapons and money.

Unusual weapon to use in a civil war. Scud missiles are notoriously unreliable and not very accurate. As far as i can find the most accurate version is only precise up to 50m. Not a very good missile to use if you're trying to keep friendly civilians safe.

The US is backing the rebels/mercenaries
Why in the world would a country bomb itself? It makes no sense to me...
Obama specifically singled out the radical Islamist Syrian group Jabhat al-Nusrah, which the United States on Tuesday designated as a foreign terrorist organization that it said was trying to hijack the rebellion on behalf of al Qaeda in Iraq.
Stalemate between major powers, particularly the United States and Russia, has paralyzed the wider international response to the violence, leaving regional Sunni Muslim states such as Turkey and the Gulf Arab countries helping the rebels and Shi'ite Iran providing support to Assad.

The Russians are distancing themselves from the Assad regime, when they fall the new government will be radical Islamists, they are going to be looking to every nation that sponsored Assad for revenge, and it wont be conventional, the new Syria will be a sponsor of terrorism, and will support proxies and affiliates to achieve their objectives in the region and elsewhere against all enemies and non-muslims.
Syria is going to be such a wonderful new place when they are finally "liberated"
As the radical islamist have been cut out of the new group that would be unlikely. In fact post Assad fall the rebels will move to clean them out, a move they have already made in some areas they have secured. The post Assad goverment will a be a mixture that will require coalitions to rule. You can expect this to a be lond hard process with Syria. What they will end up like will not be clear for a decade or more.
The Obama administration’s designation of a Syrian rebel group as a terrorist organization reflects unease about the factions receiving support from U.S. allies in the fight against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The U.S. added one of the more successful anti-Assad military groups, al-Nusra Front, to its list of terrorist organizations Dec. 11, citing the group’s ties to al-Qaeda in Iraq. U.S. officials worry that the conflict has become a magnet for Islamic militants, and it hasn’t armed rebels out of concern that weapons could fall into fundamentalist hands.
