These two girls lost their father and two siblings when the Syrian Army shelled their home in Idlib, Syria. The 12 year old flashes a V sign which, I’m told, in Syria signifies “Win or Die.”

Bag’s Take-Away:
The final pic in a Newsweek photo gallery showing posters of Assad. If the pictures are pretty random, this one requires a pause. Just a random wire hanging in the foreground, it’s suggestive of a noose. Call it photographic wishful thinking?

Homs pipeline on fire. Something tells me (see caption) this is a little beyond a couple neighborhood “terrorists.”

(photo credit: Anonymous/AP caption: This Wednesday Feb. 15, 2012 satellite image shows a pipeline fire in Homs, Syria. The pipeline, which runs through the rebel-held neighborhood of Baba Amr, in Homs, had been shelled by regime troops for the previous 12 days, according to two activist groups, the Local Coordination Committees and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The state news agency, SANA, blamed “armed terrorists” for the pipeline attack last week. It said the pipeline feeds the tankers in the Damascus suburb of Adra, which contribute in supplying gasoline to the capital and southern regions.)
