Battlefield Damascus

--STORY CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES -- As Western powers grapple with how to respond to allegations of chemical attacks in Syria -- there is no let up in the fight in Damascus. Amateur video, which can not be independently verified by Reuters appears to show a government tank under attack. One soldier flees to safety. Another -- already injured -- tries to escape the fight. The ongoing violence comes amid fierce debate among the international community over how to respond to the alleged use of chemical weapons last week. More than 100,000 people have been killed in the more than two year old conflict. And those numbers just keep rising. Rebel fighters continue their campaign in the streets on the Capitol. The Syrian conflict has split the Middle East along sectarian lines. Shi'ite Muslim Iran has supported Assad against mainly Sunni rebels, some of them Islamists, who have backing from Gulf Arab states.
