So Many Lies Its Hard To Keep Up

The 'Assad Killed 100,000' Lie
The pro-war crowd will say anything to gin up public support for the ill-advised illegal war they crave.
"The truth is bad enough, surely, but it's not 100,000.  But that figure, so many others others, is being used as spin to induce people to back the war against Syria.  The facts, from more than one group but this leading one here, is that at least 40,000 of that total is Assad forces or militias supporting him.   Militia fighting him--and non-combatants (killed by both sides)--make up the rest.  In fact, not a single report or count, even by the Assad opponents and groups friendly to him, endorse the 100,000 figure."
