It is aweful if this is the truth, I have a tough time believing the movie clips any more, they just seem to organized and staged from both sides. The gore created in some clips is just that, gore. I wish they would allow the media in to confirm and stop this dramatization.

Well, the article says at the very end that 'Syrian activists have claimed', so it must be true. Why would they make things up? LOL

See, if the authors had at all doubted the truth of the story, they would have put 'Syrian activists have claimed' at the beginning and not the end. Putting it at the end is just an afterthought and makes them look like real journalists and not propagandists.

The pen is mightier than the sword, even when it leaks.

Many moons ago, I was invited to speak on CNN every hour on the hour about the latest body counts direct from the opposition, not once in a blue moon like now.

Here I am in my heyday, imitating a foreign affairs analyst:

"During the NATO campaign, State Department spokesman James Rubin of the State Department and Jamie Shea of the UK told us 100,000 to 500,000 Kosovo-Albanians were missing and feared dead and warned us of "indicators that genocide is unfolding in Kosovo."

President Clinton compared Kosovo to Nazi Germany's Holocaust against the Jews. He said Serbia's alleged persecution of Kosovo's ethnic Albanians, like "the ethnic extermination of the Holocaust," was a "vicious, premeditated, systematic oppression fueled by religious and ethnic hatred."

After eight years of searching, evidence of genocide against Kosovo's ethnic Albanians has not materialized. The number of ethnic Albanians who died or went missing is anywhere from 90 percent to 99 percent lower than the estimates we were given during the war."

That is the problem, cluster bombs have a wide territory and that is why they are used. to his specifically these small children could have been by accident but more collateral damage would be there as well.

Oh, such nonsense. What tactical advantage is there in preventing civilians from fleeing? Obviously, they were targeting combatants fleeing into safe zones, probably mixing in with civilians for PR effect. What do you think they learned in their visit to Pristina?

Personally, I'm surprised they don't use drones, where the civilian to combatant kill ratio is a much healthier 2:1.
