The killing in Syria is not over yet, now it looks like that break that the Syrian leadership took from massacring their own people a could of weeks ago has only been used for perfecting a technique that is better for faster and deadlier approach. Now the army artillery and tanks divisions are spread over the whole of the country and is responding with overwhelming brutality to any show of opposition.
The term “revolution” does not seem to cover what is going on in Syria, because its already months in action, and because so many have already lost their lives in this struggle, it seems that the term popular uprising is more befitting this kind of clash between a dictatorial regime and its citizens.
And still the world can not care less, while the US (Nobel Peace winner) president forces himself to mutter a few words about “being very disturbed by the hundreds murdered in Syria” the Europeans are looking into some more restrictions upon Syria, like limiting the supply of French wine, which is not in huge demand in that part of the world. All this why? because big brother Iran is standing firm behind the butchers in power, and because the leaders of most western countries realize how bad their support for the Egyptian revolution turned (now looks like Egypt is going to be ultra religious for the next decades), and are naturally fearful that an Islamist Syria will be worst than a Dictatorial beaten up Syria. Maybe they are right, but nonetheless we should point out that many are killed every day, and that this silence is not adding up the credits in our favor when looking in the mirror.
