Patrick Cockburn and Robert Fisk, from "Independent", are two of the best sources for info on our region, what makes them so invaluable (besides their extensive first hand experience of the region) is how they're very familiar with the Western mainstream/corporate propaganda machines, and at the same time they also have no illusions about Assad or his allies.
Below is another good source for authentic info on Syria. The author in this interview also cites how "a lack of independent reporting makes it difficult to get an accurate picture of the reality on the ground in Aleppo."

Fake news, biased news, etc. "Journalists and public alike should regard all information about Syria and Iraq with reasoned scepticism."

What can't be disputed is that humans are the biggest threat to their own existence. Across the world we regularly exhibit hate, destruction, death...and for what? Power, ideology, religion, land, survival (fear of other humans), etc.?

We're so incredibly unevolved...

Facebook is the worst addiction of the century and unfortunately the main source of information for many addicts.

Too late buddy! The Alt-Right is normal and mainstream. Newsflash for those living in Canada: Trump is about to be sworn in as President of the United States!

The press said Clinton had a +90% chance of winning. Turns out that was fake news. Unlike Facebook which generates more page views w/ fake news, the press helped depress voter turnout with theirs.

You still leave the most important question unanswered, because you know any response will expose the origins of your hateful politics.
The question which you consistently evade remains: What is so honorable about being in the same camp as KKK, David Duke, Alt-Right, American Nazi party and all those assorted racist thug a holes?
You can't refute the numbers I have provided you, so it is YOU who engages in generalities. Do you have any specific numbers that would validate your baseless claim? Other than some generalities about a non existent 'half the country'? No, you don't.
No one needs your advise about where to leave, but you need to educate yourself on American literature and culture and comprehend why Samuel Johnson considers patriotism to be the last refuge of a scoundrel.
Do you understand what Samuel Johnson is talking about? Most probably not.

You generalize so much that I assumed you would round up your numbers. You should consider moving to the US if you want to experience heartfelt patriotism. Unlike Canada we have a proud tradition of it!

Your math is as inadequate as your 'logic'.
Only between 50 to 55% of eligible voters participate in presidential elections, which brings the total number of voters to about 120,000,000 out of a total population of 320,000,000. Even if half vote for your Orange Hitler, the number comes to around 50 to 60 millions which is barley a fifth.
Are the core supporters of Trump unreconstructed racist thugs? YES.
The question you need to ask yourself but never do is the following: What is so patriotic or decent with being in the same rank as KKK, David Duke, Alt-Right and all those other degenerate a holes?
I live in Canada, no need to move.
And don't forget what Samuel Johnson said about patriotism:
"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Are you implying that half the country is racist? Will you move to Canada when Trump wins or will you be a true American patriot and support your President?

Yes, majority of Trump's core supporters are unreconstructed racist thugs like KKK, David Duke, Alt-Right,....
Trump has built up an extensive track record of getting sued by DOJ for discrimination against Blacks.
Trump's entire campaign is a campaign of racists, by racist for racists.

Majority!? Wrong. Back those words with statistics. Go on and start Googling.
By your flawed logic you mind as well argue that the majority of Obama supporters are black thugs and Hillary supporters are angry feminists who hate men. Neither is true of course but you prefer to generalize and make shit up.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee, majority of Trump's core supporters are unrepentant. unreconstructed racists, the same type that burned a Black church is Mississippi last night and wrote "Vote Trump" on the walls.
This type of degenerate, racist politics is what keeps the TV ratings high.
