RIP, to this reporter. The Fact is the individuals who work for Seda va Sima or Press TV are all ex pasdar or Basij, otherwise they will not get forign assignment. These Pasdar and basijis who serve as reporters in Syria or even in NY or London for Press TV are there to collect information for the Revelutionary Guard. thefore they are Informants for the Enemy. the Enemy is the Islamist Ocuupiers of Iran.

So our beloved freedom fighter of Syrian nationality or most likely Saudi or Jordanians or well you see where I am going with this, are snipping news crews ? What is shocking me today is the fact that all media in us blame Assad for the killing and now ones talk about this so called FSA crimes against humanity. There are numerous report of the war crimes done by FSA in urban areas. Well its is know to people who shall care . And those who wants to bash Iran and act retarded , the may as well support MEK or OBL groups .


Good riddance
