The two competing narratives over the war in Syria – regime steadily piling up victories versus rebels stubbornly bleeding an embattled enemy – have been around for a while, perhaps the best evidence of the fluid military stalemate. Last week's rebel departure from the Old City of Homs was trumpeted as the latest victory for the regime, but the war is raging on more than half a dozen fronts. On the same day that government officials and troops fanned out in parts of the central city that had been lost to them for nearly two years, after a few thousand hungry and exhausted fighters finally left Homs by bus, the regime experienced at least three other setbacks.Anti-regime media activists interviewed several rebel fighters before they left Homs and several angrily said they were "let down" by the international community and the group of countries that supposedly back the armed opposition.One fighter was more specific, as he talked about the disappointment that came when rebel units in "rural Homs" failed to try and break the regime siege.
