US aircraft operating over Syria have been taking out stranded ISIS fighters one or two at a time in recent days, as a convoy of the group's militants remains stranded in the desert, according to a Foreign Policy report.

Eight days ago, a convoy of 17 buses carrying 300 to 500 fighters and their families left the eastern side of the country after a truce was reached between surrendering ISIS fighters and Syrian government forces, which are backed by Hezbollah.

My understanding of why Lebanon allowed the US to 'strand' these fighters (bomb them) is that ISIS made the Lebanese government mad at them (beheading people...)

I don’t know exactly what ripe figs and lots of water would do but it sounds like the results would be nasty. lol.

I want to see some of the take-down videos. Kill ‘em all, what leak or dump at a time. All the women and children too. These murderers have to be stopped by killing every last one of them.

Well now they qualify for the #cantPee campaign. I wonder which state will grant them special status so they can pee anywhere they want without being bullied.

These women are guilty too. Only the children are innocent.

Water makes you pee, and ripe figs make you poo.

The article was published around the 5th. Since then, I heard the Russians told us to let them go and we did. I would love for someone to tell me I’m mistaken. I’m wanting them all dead, men, women, and children, but apparently we aren’t at war with them even if they are at war with us.

I suspect you might be right that in situation the right thing to do is even to kill the children as there is no other way, but I still feel very bad about it. I have arguments for and against bumbling in my head. Could you show the angle you took in your thoughts that these children are ok to kill. I don’t care about the men or the women and think they all deserve a bullet to the head.

Russia told us to lay off ‘em.

They have also been getting water and food from vehicles from Syrian Regime held land.

So, in more than one way, Hezbollah/Russia/Iran/Syria have acted in this strange way.

These ISIS terrorists are some of the stone cold bad guys who have been on a crimes against humanity binge for years beheading and crucifying their way across Syria and Iraq

They were give free passage by the Syrian government as as part of a prisoner swap of Syrian prisoners held by ISIS

The Syrians and Russians don't want to be seen as double crossing the ISIS Jihadi

Here's my thoughts on it. One day one of these kids will behead one of my descendants because we killed his scum bag terrorist daddy. Some gene pools can't be cleansed except with extermination.

But they don’t use toilet paper, so may they itch themselves to death.
