Video of “moderate” Syrian rebels commiting mass execution…GRAPHIC…

moderate rebels execute“War is hell,” as the old platitude goes, and there is no war where both sides have not committed atrocities. The Syrian civil war is no exception. A rebel, disenchanted with such atrocities, has smuggled a video out of Syria graphically depicting a brutal execution of captive soldiers. The man responsible is known as “the uncle,” or Mr. Issa (Arabic for Jesus), commander of the Jund Al-Sham brigade associated with the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The video serves as a clear illustration as to how all factions of the Syrian rebels have adopted the same grisly, dubious tactics as the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Yet many policy makers in Washington continue to romanticize Assad’s opposition as paragons of virtue fighting for freedom, conveniently ignoring their war crimes.
