Skip to comments.Syria: 'napalm' bomb dropped on school playground, BBC claims
Posted on 08/30/2013 10:50:03 AM PDT by mojito
Footage has emerged of a horrific incident in northern Syria which reportedly shows the aftermath of an incendiary bomb being dropped on a school playground, leaving scores of children with napalm-like burns over their bodies.
Witnesses told a team from the BBC's Panorama programme that a fighter jet had repeatedly flown overhead, as if searching for a target, before dropping the bomb.
The attack killed more than 10 pupils and left many more seriously injured, the BBC said.
Footage showed adults and children, their clothes burned from their bodies, being treated on the floor of a basic hospital. Many had burns to more than 50% of their bodies, it was claimed.
Many were badly burned, shaking uncontrollably and left caked in a white substance, injuries which the BBC said suggested the bomb contained something like napalm or thermite.

War is hell. So what else was in the playground area?
Not me. Anybody who wants in on this fight needs to hike up their panties, get organized, and go fight on their own dime.
Muzzies do it all the time, its time for the armchair generals to show us what they got.
Didn’t say when this happened.
I’m with you on that, got the t shirt and don’t need another. Perhaps his excellency, our CIC, would care to lead us into battle? Maybe that is why he could not find the time to address the nation today and sent out kerry...he is over in Lebonon suiting up probably bringing his skeet gun with him.
The BBC has video here:
Have no fear. We’re getting some “taped” comments from the mewling little bitch in chief soon.
I noticed that too.
The footage from the BCC, which I linked at another post, claims this to be a recent incident, within the past few days.
Seriously, you want this war with Syria so bad;y, that you'll imply that he was targeting a school playground with a napalm bomb?
I think that a napalm attack would have killed everyone.
Have to be very careful about over reacting to photos coming out of the ME. They have had history of embellishing and photoshopping.
I guess he has departed DC for parts unknown, just in case.
As he boarded AF1 he yelled out so long suckers.
I saw a video of this on TV this morning. It looked staged to me .... looked like they smeared Vick’s Vapor Rub, or something similar, on their faces ... one was limping ... and of course there were “wounded” children. As far as I’m concerned it was a typical poorly done Arab propaganda piece. I AM NOT CONVINCED.
They torture and murder kids of their own ideology. They hate themselves, each other, and everyone else.
Viking Kitties strike back!
Way too funny
He was an on the spot eye witness or what?
Once again, who did the deed?
Were any US tax dollars involved?
Man, TPTB really want this war.
Until I see the video of Assad personally detonating an atomic bomb inside the head of a school kid, I’m not convinced that this isn’t propaganda.
No, they don't.
What they want is their DAMN GOLD. We cruise missiled the heck out of Ghadaffi in pursuit of the gold from the Lybia National Bank.
The world's banking elite (like the FED RES) from US, England, France, etc., had their REAL GOLD (not the fake tungsten filled crap that most have gotten stuck with) hidden in the Libyan National Bank. All the involved parties (like England, France) joined the US in going after it.
Problem is that Ghadaffi moved it. We have been following the trail, and it looks like it went to SYRIA. As payback, we left Ghadaffi out to be butt-raped and then murdered.
No amount of effort, bombs, or lives of American soldiers will be spared in an effort to get the GOLD back for our RULING ELITE.
It's always about the money, and in this case the money is SOLID GOLD.
That is why this insane 'drive' to start shooting cruise missiles at Assad.
>>I think that a napalm attack would have killed everyone.<<
Why do you say that?
One bomb, which I doubt was more than 100 lbs. It’s possible someone could make a 250, just unlikely.
With napalm the concussion isn’t earth shaking like an HE bomb. There is minimal shrapnel. The damage is accomplished by the burns inflicted on the casualties. Without a sharp knife to scrape it off your skin, any contact only spreads it, increasing the pain.
The woman was definitely staged for filming. That doesn’t look anything like napalm. The boy, earlier, looked like he had a liquid poured on him. Nothing like the explosive injuries I am familiar with.
Huh? Why would major countries store their gold in Libya. that makes no sense.
“Everyones credibility has gone to Hell, and every terrorist now tries to exploit it.”
I would say:
Obamas credibility has gone to Hell, and every terrorist now tries to exploit it.
I also thought that there is a western oil company (Apache?) drilling in western Egypt, and they wanted a friendlier government in Egypt so they could exploit Egypts resources to the fullest and they wanted Benghazi as the closest port.
I never heard that thing about Libya having gold. How did they get it?
I am agreeing with what you said.
Assad is not the one that benefits from chemicals killing school children.
A baby milk factory.
Their culture is hate and murder. The fact 0 sees it as the exact opposite does not change the truth.
If you were part of a consortium of the Western Hemiphere's largest bankers, politiicians, and crooks (that may be redundant), where would you keep YOUR GOLD ?
Fort Knox ? Don't make me laugh.
What is the “TPTB”?
