I don't doubt that some of the SAA soldiers did horrific things, first of all because you don't know the intentions of every man, and second in war it will always happen on both sides.
Both sides have killed innocent people, but with the SAA its wrong co-ordinates not purposely because of your religion or ethnicity.
But there are rogue soldiers who want to be brave or take their anger out.
I'm sure those pictures are real, but to say that its government ran, or Assad personally orders it, is really not believable.
It really does sound like something from the Holocaust, where there are hard to believe stories, minced bodies? lol
Guantamno bay, Abu Gharib etc people were abused, that was down to individual soldiers, as much as I hate Bush I don't think he personally gave orders to rape and do indecent things to prisoners there, nor do I think Assad personally gave orders to do it.
