Assad Government is the Internationally Recognized Government of Syria

Again we see media bias with all of the photos in this article being of rebel groups.  It seem the media insists that regular army navy and air force personel of Syria are not citizens of syria, not legitimate regular armed forces of the legal syrian government and are to be lumped together with the so called dictator.  The rebels, under US law would be conisdered terorists and sabatuers worthy of hanging.  Under international law they are parisans, irregulars and terorists.  During the US civil war both sides had uniforms, insignia, and identifiable flags which were the requirement for the forces of both sides to be considered legitimate and not criminal.  It seems that when it suits the usa, we can declare anybody a dictator and criminal.  However, the assad government IS the legal government of Syria.  It has legal ambassadors in 101 country and is the recognized legal representative of the Syrian people in the UN.  Only the Assad government can sign legally binding contracts or threaties for the Syrian nation.  The so call rebels have absolutely no legal standing anywhere for anything.  Perhaps that is why nobody even thinks of asking the rebels to account for their chemical weapons or their use of chemical weapons because there is no legitimate group to answer.
