The media simply states it as a fact, with no righteous outrage, like in the case of you know who.
(INN) Reports Monday afternoon said that more than 60 people were killed in battles between rebels and troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad since the morning. A report on Al-Jazeera Monday afternoon said that another senior Syrian army official had defected, and joined the rebels.
In an interview with a Saudi newspaper, a leader of the Syrian rebels said that Assad's fate would be no different than the fate of Libya leader Muammar Qadaffi. Qadaffi was killed as he attempted to hide from Libyan rebels, but had he been captured alive, he would have been tried for genocide. Assad, too, had a great deal of blood on his hands, and would either be killed in battle or put on trial, the rebel leader told the paper.
