The Destruction of Daraa (Part 1) 4

In March 2011, Syrian citizens began protesting oppressive government rule in the city of Daraa. Assadi government troops fired on the protesters, resulting in the beginning of the war in Syria.

Three years later, rebels are still in a deadlocked civil war with President Bashar al Assad and his sympathizers that continues to rip the country apart.

VICE went to Daraa to see out where the revolution started, where it continues, and where the loss to the people of Syria can be seen on every bombed-out street corner.

there are rotting corpses lying around this city, and all these soldiers or rebels talk about is their mosque being destroyed....bury the dead first, get your priorities straight, respect life and honor the dead, then rebuild your city and your mosque.

85% of Syrians voted for Assad in the recent elections. Is Vice going to address that? Seems like there's more to the story than rebels vs."oppressive regime"....

VICE is nothing but PROPAGANDA of the worst kind, targeting the young aged people, who don't care about politics that much...
They throw some cool documentaries about drugs, and gangs, and cool subjects in general, in order to attract subscribers, and BOOM, propaganda in your face.

Complaining about the army bombed a Mosque, while they are blowing up Mosques, Churches, Shrines and other holy places.

While I would agree that Vice takes a very pro-Western bias, what I like about it is that they actually embed journalists with the fighters on the ground. This is NOT something you'd see any other mainstream news source which take the statements of our government as absolute unquestioned truth.

I'm not feeling sympathy for these "rebels." Just remember, these are the rebels that used chemical weapons on civilians and committed even more atrocities than bashar's regime. Bashar isn't the best, but having these rebels take over would be an absolute disaster.

Hard to believe what was told in this video, well, besides the visible destruction. The minute that guy started to talk about revolution this, revolution that, "documentary" turned into a propaganda clip. This guy talked about "evil Iranians", but said nothing about Wahhabi terrorists. He talked about "Assad's evil regime", yet didn't talk about Saudis pouring money and weapons in hands of terrorists. He didn't even mention anything about how they are getting supplies and intel from CIA.

Too many repititions... saying that the mosque was a symbol of the revolution twice woulda been more than enough, really hard to watch this way
