DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Twin bombings near an elementary school in Syria killed at least 32 people on Wednesday, including at least 10 children, with the second blast going off as screaming parents frantically searched for their sons and daughters in a street littered with school bags and body parts.
Boy, do they know how to have fun in the Middle East or what? Blowing up kids for kicks and political profit. To be fair, we don't know if these brats were doing their homework or not so maybe they had it coming. Spare the rod and all that rot!
ISIS mauls and mutilates its way through the countryside with seemingly little hindrance. How can this be? The number of the opposition is over ten times their numbers. Wha goin' on here??
What would happen here if someone bombed an elementary school? It can certainly be done. But you know why it hasn't? Because there's no moral support for it. Never say never in a world in decline but everyone needs to feel they have a constituency before they act. Whatever your rationale professed for attacking kids here would be rejected wholesale. Yet in some parts of the world, bombs can always be excused on some level.
Next, outside of a war zone, this is the most dangerous place on earth, San Pedro Sula, the second largest city in Honduras, at the crossroads of drug shipments from South America to the United States.
More than 1,200 people were killed in the city last year, more than 7,000 in the country. Thanks to those ongoing drug wars, it has the highest per capita murder rate in the world.
Don't forget enslaved prostitution and literally do-or-die recruitment into the gangs!
Rubble in paradise
Yes. You only shoot them once, then bury them [alive]. Then they will drown in their own blood in the ground.
The gangs are trying to rehabilitate their image, and the authorities seem keen to help them. They allow Marcus out of jail for the day. He’s come to an old people’s home to deliver a gift of 50 beds.
Yup, when you bury people alive you most certainly need to rehabilitate your image. Mattress delivery more than makes up for that, though. And the authorities are helping them?? WTF? Why would they help the bad guys?
But why isn't everyplace like these places if these forces are so unstoppable?
There's been heated debate recently on what we should do about the terrorists du jour, ISIS. Need boots on the ground. Occupy! Occupy! They can't help themselves.
But there's also another group of terrorists, far more lethal than the pansies described above. They play for all the marbles, out to destroy the lives of tens of millions. These monsters, in essence, are out to end what we know as civilization. Can't we occupy these maniacs too??
