Government-controlled Syria Times reports this story
about British MP's being shown lingering damage to the town of Quneitra that they Syrians got back from Israel in 1973. 30 years later they still haven't cleaned up the town and of course they would never want anyone reporting the lasting damage to the larger city of Hama
that was almost completely destroyed and paved over by the late Hafez Assad in 1982, an incident in which as many as 30,000 of his own people may have died. I remind everyone that every terrorist organization you can think of still has offices in Damascus.
