Very sorry these brave Syrians were killed in their attempt. These are the people in the Middle East that we should support with military and money, not the Dictators and/or the Muslim Brotherhood.
By "independent" I mean they are not necessarily state-sponsored nor are they--intentionally--working for an opposing military or political organization.
I probably should not be saying this, but war correspondents working behind "enemy lines" are essentially independent intelligence operatives...the risks and rewards are very similar. The risk, of course, is you might be killed--and others might be killed attempting to help you. The reward, potentially, is saved lives due to the information they carry might be used to rally international support for the opposition or even more specific intelligence to save others.
Actually, I believe the stories they carry to the outside world are critically important--and I'd bet the Syrians used the same justification to risk their lives to try to smuggle them out. They aren't more important, but this was far from a pointless risk.
These idiot journalists should not be endangering the lives of others like this. They will do anything to get their stories, with little or no thought to the consequences to those around them. If a journalist dies as a result of intentionally going into harms way, then so be it, but their lives are certainly no more important than those who have died trying to save them...........
Assad needs to be brought before the ICC to answer for his crimes. Russia needs to stop interfering with attempts to bring about some sort of viable action.
