ASSAD BOMBED THE DAR AL SHIFA HOSPITAL
Today, the Dar al Shifa field hospital in Aleppo – which was the subject of the VICE documentary Ground Zero Syria: Aleppo Field Hospital – was bombed into rubble by Assad’s MIG jets. The FSA’s Aleppo media centre is reporting 15 dead, 20 wounded, and many still under the rubble.
Two of the dead were allegedly hospital staff and two were children. An unconfirmed rumour is circulating that a Canadian film crew was also inside at the time of the bombing. Our correspondent Robert King was 100 yards away when the bombs dropped. The air was heavy with smoke and debris, like a thick fog – the hospital was nowhere to be seen because it had been completely levelled. Grown men stumbled around shellshocked, covered in dust. Grieving Syrians shouted “Allahu Akhbar” and gathered the wounded from the rubble, wrapping up the dead and throwing their bodies in the backs of minitrucks.
“Try killing this dog now, you terrorist bastards!”

“You know, it’s weird, man. It’s like everybody’s real cordial with each other. But, at the end of the day, we’re, like, buying weapons to destroy each other. I don’t want to, like, sound liberal or anything. But it’s really not glamorous. This shit fucking kills people.” Shockingly, the guy who said this wasn’t some antiwar hippie who had just dropped acid. He was a 6’4” Marine Corps Force Recon sergeant who had recently returned from two tours in Afghanistan. We were both attendees at the 2010 Special Operations Force Exhibition (SOFEX) in Jordan. His booming reaction was prompted by the trade-show floor—a sea of displays and kiosks from weapons companies hawking missiles, machine guns, tanks, and bombs like they were next year’s luxury sedans. Even more unsettling, the expo’s biggest sponsor was the USA.

You probably heard about those two British tourists who got kicked out of America for tweeting some shitty jokes.
The astonishingly named Leigh Van Bryan tweeted: “Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America”. Then he said he planned to “dig up Marilyn Monroe”. Which is apparently a line from Family Guy. It’s a joke or something. I dunno, ask Seth MacFarlane.
It’s all a bit like that guy who got convicted for threatening to blow up an airport. Except, stupid as that conviction is, he did actually threaten to blow up an airport and you can see why that would freak out security guys. Even if you took Leigh Van Bryan TOTALLY LITERALLY, he threatened to ‘destroy America’. To me, he doesn’t look equipped to pull that off. He looks like he’s in The Feeling.
Anyway. I was panicked by these online threats to our freedom and decided to check Twitter to see if there were any criminals that the authorities needed to be aware of before it was too late. It turns out there are loads of people out there waiting to do real harm to America. I assume I’ll get a medal for turning them in.
