15. yeah I noticed this in videos of the Marathon Bombing, people repeating "Oh God!, Oh God,. ."

 

I though how in videos of US bombings, military/contractor murderings and drone terrorism strikes, the attacked people do the exact same thing, only in their language and cultural frame. It is somehow portrayed in our corporate media as something, "scary" and "radical extremist/terrorist" to say. It is not! It is just the same as the cries Americans make of "oh jesus" and "oh god",we do this on instinct with out thinking at all. I guess this is part of the programming of the evil other, that is needed in the creation of fictional enemies for the war machine.

17. Absolutely. Fear is their main weapon, to divide us where we would otherwise unify and live in

 

happiness. "Wars and rumors of wars". But people are waking up to this and want something different.

23. They were just hoping to live through it

but if they died, they wanted to die with god's name on their lips. That's why they kept saying that.

My own response would have been "HOLY SHIT! WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?"

4. Bashar Assad needs to go NOW!!! Assad should be on trial for war crimes!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bashar_al-Assad#Syrian_civil_war


-snip-

On 2 January 2013, the United Nations released an estimate that the war's death toll had exceeded 60,000;[79] on 12 February, this figure was updated to 70,000.[54] According to various opposition activist groups, between 68,440 and 82,130 people have been killed,[35][36][80] of which about half were civilians, but also including 33,500 armed combatants consisting of both the Syrian Army and rebel forces,[35][36][81] up to 1,000 opposition protesters[51] and 1,000 government officials.[37] By October 2012, up to 28,000 people had been reported missing, including civilians forcibly abducted by government troops or security forces.[82] According to the UN, about 1.2 million Syrians have been displaced within the country.[83] To escape the violence, as many as 1.4 million Syrian refugees have fled to neighboring countries. In addition, tens of thousands of protesters have been imprisoned and there were reports of widespread torture and psychological terror in state prisons.[84] International organizations have accused both government and opposition forces of severe human rights violations.[85] However, human rights groups report that the majority of abuses have been committed by the Syrian government's forces, and UN investigations have concluded that the government's abuses are the greatest in both gravity and scale.[86][8

6. If he is guilty of war crimes then so is Obama.

 

Civilian deaths are a trademark of his drone assassination program.

Al Qaeda may not win its war, against the hopes of some in the West.

20. Yes, I've been waiting for Assad to be tossed out for about two years now.


The new bombing does not change my opinion.

Assad needs to go ASAP!

14. Don't know...

Looked like a 500 lbs gravity bomb detonation. Straight up explosion path, indicates vertical or near vertical delivery. 500 lbs of C-4 is damn impressive.

25. I think you might be right.

During the war in Iraq a US ammo supply dump blew up after being attacked by mortars and it looked just like that.

If only the people there each had their own uzi with a hundred round clips, they would have been able to overthrow their oppressors.

24. Offhand, I'd say yes

because it looked like the whole sky ignited for a second or two.

I am delighted I wasn't there. I'm glad the filmers are still with us and uploaded their video.
