And some one had the balls to walk up to him crazy
As long as he eschews Mad Mo’, he’ll be fine.
Looks like a female aid worker. Balls indeed.
Your heart is hard.
Must of Missed the Amber Alert for little Marvin.....
"Russia needs to be a part of the solution," Kerry continued, "and not be contributing so many more weapons and so much more aid that they are in effect enabling Assad to double-down, which is creating an enormous problem.
Last I heard, Russia was contributing to the solution by preventing Obama from pimping out the US military to Saudi Arabia, and starting WWIII, by supplying weapons, MANPADS, and sarin to Al Queda, Libyan rebels, and Syrian rebels that slaughter Christians.
Not as hard as those who are known for strapping explosives to kids.
Makes you wonder what is ahead for him...hopefully he’ll remember the people in blue who rescued him for a very long time.
The parents are disappointed because he dropped his bomb vest and didn’t make it to the Jewish market.
Looks like him with these people 'before' he was found after temporarily seperating from his family...
Seeing the suitcase in the forefront he couldn't have been that far from the group.....
Tell me about it.
This kid is DESTINED to live a long life. Nothing short of a silver bullet will kill him.
Back in the 80s I heard a similar, but even more melancholy story, from an old Armenian man in Australia.
As a little child - only about 3 years old - he was found by Beduins walking in the Syrian desert. They picked him up, and tracked back to where he came from. There was all his family, lying dead, perished from lack of food and water. They were part of the huge forced exile of Armenians in the early 1920s.
The Beduins took him to Damascus, where he was in a Christian orphanage, then they were able to send him to Australia. Many years later, he returned to northern Syria, and thanked members of the tribe who found him.
Nice story, thanks.
The Middle East is such a mess, so many innocent people who once had lives are now homeless and shuffling from place to place looking for what? A new home? Not likely. A place to sleep tonight? Their next meal? I cannot even imagine living under these conditions.
The brutality in Syria is ghastly. A short time ago, it was a country that, for the most part, worked. Not perfect, but they did have an economy, religious freedom, a culture. How long until they have those essentials again? Ever?
Is this all the terrorists’ doing? Al Qaida? Who stirred that pot? Who turned up the heat? Mind boggling.
That’s nothing. My sister and brother lost track of me when I was about three. A trucker found me up on the highway five blocks away and got me to a cop who returned me home (I had a name/address bracelet on me - like a dog). Back in the day I guess when a child was found wandering the highway the cops were good with “Oh - you’re the older sister - here you go. Keep a better eye on the kid.”
Everything would have been okay until I started jabbering about “Pee Man” “Pee man car” at dinner in front of mom and dad. My sister probably wished SHE was lost in the desert about that time when she had to explain what I was talking about!
