    Yes Ronald is right. Thank you SouthFront. You all do a very good job. South Front is probably the best informed news site in relation to the war in Syria that exist for regular people to access.
    This is no small feat. Thank you on behalf of all people, and on the history that will be corrected over time from the BBC and CNN’s lies.
    You all have done a good deed to all people groups around the world be reporting the raw truth combined with detailed analysis and maps and informational videos that educate the masses, instead of dumbing them down as CNN and Jpost does.
