    sometimes, you have to fight back with the same level of brutality if you expect to survive.

    The Administration has nothing to gain by publicizing this.

    Why do those Muslims think they can rape, pillage, burn without repercussions? Well, because they can.

    So far.

    I still think Obama, what with it happening so close to his birthplace, should say something registering his disapproval and the disapproval of a Christian nation. :whistling:

    True, especially as long as we feel his need to be all warm and loving to those leaders of the Muslim nations.
    (Hey, anyone know what sort of government Muslim nations enjoy?)

    Well.......

    It sorta depends on who is in the white house. We put a huge dent in Mohammed's supply of virgins after 9/11.

    The picture is from a fuel tanker that over turned in 2010 and bursted onto flames as the people were trying to scoop up the gas.

    Proof? Link?

    I hate it when I am wrong, but truth is more powerful than 'feelings'.
    Gimme a hand, here.

    The refererenced article says that the evidence is inconclusive.

    It could be a picture of murder victims, it could be a picture of tanker truck accident victims.


    PS: After Googling it I conclude that the picture is of burned victims from a gasoline tanker which overturned in the Congo. It was covered by Reuters, The Wall Street Journal and some French news sources.

    Ok, but with all due respect, I would like something more than your conclusion to go by.

    I've seen media stories which very well could conclude all those dead folks were from drowning.

    When the bottom of the page shows links to related articles from countdowntozerotime.org, inprisonedwomen.wordpress.com (yes, they actually spelled it "inprisoned"), lunaticoutpost.com and illuminati360.worpress.com - more than a healthy dose of skepticism is called for, IMO.
