Lessons Learned From Syria

The one year old events in Syria have a grave lesson to teach anyone who loves freedom and thinks that humanity, in its 2012 version, will move in to protect people under oppressive rules. The ongoing slaughter in Syria is a clear indication that to aspire for help, form the west or from any other place on the globe, is false hope.

Kofi Annan had just concluded a visit to Syria, where he thought that the regime promised a cease fire with the rebels, however as soon as he left, and even more so, as soon as this cease fire should have been in effect the fighting only grow stronger. Maybe “fighting” is not the right word here, where combat helicopters are shooting missiles designed to penetrate tanks at unarmed civilians.

It seems that there is no limit to the level of insults Assad’s Syria is capable at hurling at the international community, and even to the Arab league, that obscure body of Arab leaders who sometimes get together to make mostly financial decisions. This time Assad has spat in the face of the UN (but seriously, no one takes offense to that), the mediators from Qatar, and the Arab league.

And as the former UN secretary left the country feeling he had made a difference, the Syrian army pounded cities with a brutal force killing more than 100 people on Tuesday alone. One can only imagine the outrage that would have been sparked worldwide if it was Israel doing the same – only that when it is old Muslim on Muslim violence anything goes, just like it was in good-old Assad’s father day when he massacred the sunni minority in his country.

Attention Russia & China - Your Syrian Friends Are Still Killing Children

Enjoying your day? here is something that could ruin it – for a while (but not if you are Chinese or Russian).

While the former UN president Kofi Anan prepares to leave Syria without getting any results at all news of a newly discovered massacre appear, along with video and photos of about 50 Syrians who were tortured and murdered in the last few days. The obvious suspect is the army, loyal to president Assad, who seems to continue life as usual while what is left of his army goes around and simply destroys anyone who might even be an opposition (including young girls and boys, old women and anything in between).

The brilliant diplomatic statement to respond to the accusations is “it was not us”, which may be true, however it does not seem like any other men with guns were in Homs at the time of the army’s (other) extreme violent actions of the last few weeks, in which those unfortunate 50 bodies are only a fraction of the total murder count.

If you ever asked yourself how could it have been that in the 30s’ Stalin’s soviet union killed millions and no one did a thing, later on to be followed by Nazi Germany and on to our age Rwanda genocide take a good look at what is happening in Syria for months now, and see how no one does a thing.

Here is a video from today –¬†Viewer Discretion is Advised

Foreign Journalists Begging Help From Homs Syria

In this video from today in Homs Syria you can see and hear journalists working for the French newspaper “La Figaro” and “Times” asking for urgent medical assistance and request to be evacuated to the Lebanon boarder, the video starts in French and followed by Arab (the physician who is taking care of the wounded journalists), in minute 02:01 they move to English.

These journalists have been in the same place with the 2 French journalists who were killed yesterday, this could mean that someone is targeting those foreign media representatives and trying to slaughter them and stop news coming out of that place.

There is nothing much to explain about this video – it is a plea – almost begging, to get those people out of there, maybe just so they could be saved or maybe just so they will tell us the truth of what is going on in this city that now seems like going to be turned into a massive killing field.

We rarely ask this of our readers but – Please forward this, share this, use this video to forward to as many people you can, it is very possible that in the minute or two you have been reading this more lives were crashed in Homs, this needs to stop, for the sake of humanity.
