Syria: 'napalm' bomb dropped on school playground, BBC claims
The Guardian/BBC ^ | 8/30/2013 | Unattributed

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.

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.

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.

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.

Everyone’s credibility has gone to Hell, and every terrorist now tries to exploit it.

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.

A school yard affords a mortar team flat ground with no obstructions. To Arab soldiers (in general), many positive attributes for a fire mission,...especially if you have the high ground.

Just sayin'.

They torture and murder kids of their own ideology. They hate themselves, each other, and everyone else.
