Own comment:
(1) The results of the Darrya killings of the armed gangs can be seen in the following video below. Very graphic material portraying a lot of dead people. This is all very sad. Why did they take up arms in the first place? Why couldn't these people have invested in dialogue with the Syrian Government? You can't expect to run around with guns, killing people who disagree with you, and then survive.
