...

The footage shows the commander, his face covered in a black balaclava, shooting each prisoner in the back of the head as they kneeled, blindfolded and lined up in a row in the sand.

"The sharia court for the eastern region in Deir al-Zor has sentenced to death these apostate soldiers that committed massacres against our brothers and families in Syria," the executioner said on the video.

Islamist militants with black flags shouted "God is great" as each man was shot. The executioner returned to some victims, firing more bullets into them to make sure they were dead.

Videos of executions and torture have become increasingly common in Syria, where more than 94,000 people have been killed in a conflict now in its third year, according to the British-based Observatory, which has a network of activists in Syria.

Diveristy. Or as our Commander in Chief Stated "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation."

Pleas Mr. Obama send us some more guns so we can execute more people. We are running out of bullets.

Yes: These are the people who we are supporting. The people Juan McCain says need to replace Assad.

The Muslim Brotherhood.

Once they are done with other soldiers they will start in on Christians. While Obama says God Bless Planned Parenthood and sends these people another check.

On the bright side they are fighting Iran's Revolutionary Guard on one side and Hezbollah on the other. I can make an argument for continuing to send them enough ammo to keep them going (not a moral argument, mind you, but an argument).

Hmmmmmm......you start wars in the Middle East so you can make money off them, and the fallout is atrocities. I wonder how that would play out in a war crimes tribunal?

There is some degree of possibility that these guys were justly convicted of war crimes and rightly executed.

After all, somebody is massacring rebels and their families in Syria.

Just because we don't like the court or sharia law doesn't inherently mean the guys executed were not deserving of the death penalty.

War crime?

Where is Amnesty Internationale? Red Cross/Red Crescent? Cokehead Pinkos? Brabra Streisand? Bill Maher? Michael Moron? The Washington Poo? NYet Times? Boston Glob? Time-Lies? Newsweak?

You may have a point. Problem is we will never know because there is no news source we can fully trust.

two bits says the rebels were not Syrian at all!!

Syrian refugees say the rebels (Obama’s foreign legion) are mostly foreign to Syria.

Maybe to you, but truth hurts. Prove the characterization wrong. There is no place for political correctness in this world is a great portion of our problem.

Two weeks ago it was 70,000 dead since the war begun. This week it is 94,000 dead.

That’s an impressive 24,000 additional muzzies who will get virgins. N only 2 weeks.

Keep in mind it’s a British source, like Lancet, who infamously said that over 1 million Iraqi’s were killed in the war.
