Tempers can flare during an interview when contentious subjects are being discussed, especially in Syria when chemical weapons are being discussed.

On al-Jadeed TV, in a discussion between Free Syrian Army (FSA) Political Coordinator Luray Al-Miqdad and Syrian Commentator Akram Makkana, what was supposed to be a full, frank and wide ranging exchange of ideas turned into a screaming match full of loud (and at times imaginative) obscenities.

The helpless news anchor tries to calm the tempers and pleads with Makkana to not use the language on live TV but Makkana is having none of it and continues with his tirade until the news anchor pulls the plug.
