Syrian TV identified the woman, releasing what it claimed were images of her Michigan driver's license and U.S. passport. It also released what is said was the name and passport of a British citizen. It did not identify a third person who it claimed was a Westerner.

Well... as my Dad once said... “you screw with the bull, you’re gonna get the horn.

If they were indeed fighting alongside the insurgency, they deserved to be gunned down.

I agree, though the ideologies are different. Remember what the Spanish Civil War was a precursor to.

Is this a photo of when the rebels killed the christians?

I don’t have a clue what the right answer to all of this.

How do you stop either side of committing all of this evil?

Yes, the Rebels massacred the entire Christian Population of al-duvair village in Reef (outskirt of Homs) on May 27th.

I'm surprised they didn't cut the heart out of some and chomp on it like the Rebel made the video of a few weeks ago.

She wasn’t from Dearborn. She used to be the typical girl next door, cheerleader, Baptist, etc. Friend of mine went to school with her, near Flint.

It is important to remember where the phrase "Garbage In-Garbage Out" originated...the U.S. Military.

Really...I did not mean for that to sound/look so harsh.

If there was something you were going towards, I'm open to hear/consider it.
