Assad's forces are brutal but the FSA are just as brutal and they throw people out windows and carry out summery executions. The west must also stop giving them advanced weapons like anti aircraft Stinger missiles which the US gave Turkey permission to give them because they have no loyalty to anybody. The other day a senior commander in the FSA gave an interview giving the west an ultimatum to either do more to help them topple Assad or they would ally themselves with Al Quaida. Hate to think of what would happen if Al Quaida got things like Stinger missiles. Once Assad is gone the FSA may also splinter and different groups will fight for power so lets not look at this from the point of view that Assad is the evil monster and everybody else are innocent victims who are not doing anything to encourage Assad.
