BBC ^

Dozens of people have been killed and many wounded in a government air strike on a bakery in Syria's central Hama province, opposition activists say.

The incident took place in Halfaya, a town recently captured by rebels.

If activists' reports of 90 deaths are confirmed, this would be one of the deadliest air strikes of the civil war.

It's a shame...but it's a mess Muslims got themselves into.

We have take care of our own problems here.

Probably need to stick with home baked rolls to avoid the Muslim kill fest.

WIth all the proxies and weird alliances in Syria, I don’t think we can trust anything about who did what to whom.

And according to the Iranians, the Syrian Rebels have begun to use Chemical Weapons. Would not recommend a vacation in Syria.

Syria militants use chemical weapons against Syrian forces

THAT is the bottom line, and why we should stay OUT.

In war, the first casualty is the truth.

Who cares...The more of each other they kill, the fewer left to practice the cult of islam by killing Christians.

Looks like the Rebels are now counter claiming that chemical weapons were used on them in the bombing this thread talks about.

Rebels say Assad regime used chemical weapons in attack

So we have both sides now claiming chemical WMD have been used.

This reminds me of two infamous incidents from the Bosnian Civil War. The Markale Market Shellings were two mortar attacks targeting civilians trying to purchase food for their families during the Siege of Sarajevo. The first attack killed 68 and wounded 144; the second, which took place 18 months later, killed 37 and wounded 90.

It’s fake.
The bearded ones soaked bread in blood and spread it all around.
There are vids showing this on LiveLeak.com.

"Let me guess, you make statements like that, yet consider yourselves christians."

Absolutely! Just as this once-great Nation based on Judeo-Christian concepts of morality carpet-bombed and fire-bombed cities and towns of our dedicated enemies during WWII. I am old enough to remember reading, with joy, the newspaper stories of same.

We are in just as dangerous a war today, not just because of the recent internal coup d'Etat by communists amongst us, but by the international cult of islam that is dedicated to the death of every Christian...American or otherwise.

People like you are the ones who think that the Nation's enemies can be reasoned with...The same wimps that thought negotiating with Chinese/NK and, later, with the NV would be the best way to end a war.

In fact, most of the casualties in both wars occurred as a direct result of letting wimps like you negotiate and then surrender...Just as the current member of your ilk has done in Afghanistan.

I really don’t feel like standing-by when murderer try to kill me, my family or my culture. That would be suicidal. No thanks.
