The fact that two opposing sides see the facts differently does neither mean there are no facts, nor that one side can't be right and the other wrong. The Syrian army claims it is cleansing its city from terrorist gangs financed by Israel. The Syrian opposition says that the regime and its army butcher hundreds of innocent civilians in order to stay illegitimately in power. Two equally legitimate narratives? Impossible call? No, the Syrian regime and army is lying now as the Arab regimes and armies lied then. This is the character of oppressive totalitarian regimes. Yes, there is a real world outside there, there is objective truth, and the steak you eat is not a philosophical construct!
