Caught on video recently was a Syrian rebel cutting out the heart of a dead soldier and eating it. James Dawes, form Macalester College wants to know, “What kind of people could do this?”
Off hand, I‘d say the kind of people who, in their service to Allah, blow up innocent children, the kind of people who sexually mutilate women, the kind of people who could massacre 380 people at a school in Beslan, Russia, and the kind of people who would not hesitate to murder an 8-year-old boy in Boston.
According to the report, having eaten the man’s heart, the Syrian rebel said, “I swear to Allah we will eat your hearts out, you soldiers of Bashar. You dogs. Allah is greater! Heroes of Baba Amr—we will take out their hearts to eat them.”
This does appear to be barbaric behavior, even when measured against leftist standards.
And these are the people President Obama wants to arm, in order to bolster their opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. It actually boggles the mind, doesn’t it? What on earth would compel President Obama to even consider arming Syrian rebels?
If this (idiotic) plan to arm Syrian "barbarians" goes forward, what would that say to the world about the United States, the American people, and President Barack Obama?...
