Callousness towards life in Syria

Feb 22,2018 - Last updated at Feb 22,2018

Eastern Ghouta of Damascus is being subjected to atrocious air and ground onslaught by the Syrian government day in, day out, aided and abetted by no other than the Russian forces deployed in Syria.

Hundreds of innocent Syrian people are being slaughtered mercilessly — seemingly endlessly — without much of a reaction from the international community.

All that the UN, the Arab League, the US and some European states, notably France, had managed to come up with is issuing one pious appeal after the other to the attackers and the forces behind them to stop their attacks. Not a big deal!

These rhetorical reactions are clearly meek in comparison to the high casualties of the war in Syria. The UN Security Council tried in vain to adopt a resolution earlier this month for a full cessation of attacks on Eastern Ghouta, but Moscow, in its wisdom, stood in the way claiming that such a move would not be realistic! In other words, according to this logic, it would be more realistic to keep on killing innocent people in Syria!

Of course, Russia can stop the Syrian onslaught on Eastern Ghouta if it wanted to, but chose against that. In the meantime, innocent Syrian people get killed everyday and night with no end in sight. 

What would it take for the big powers to intervene and stop the massacre, no one knows! This callous attitude towards life in Syria, now in its eighth year, is first and foremost an affront to humanity, not to mention that it is a grave and unforgivable violation of international humanitarian law.

Obviously, the attackers and their backers, who are well-known by now, want nothing less than drive the inhabitants of Eastern Ghouta out of their homes and move to Idlib, exactly as happened when Aleppo was attacked last year and its residents evacuated to Idlib.

Once most of the 400,000 residents of the area are transferred to Idlib, they will be assembled and cornered there in preparation for the final solution!

This appears to be the blueprint for the solution of the Syrian conflict. What a shame that this is being conceived and carried out before the very eyes of the powerful nations of the world.

When this happens, and it will happen, that will be the day of infamy for mankind.

YES THE WORLD SHOULD BE OUTRAGED, SHOCKED AND UNFORTUNATELY COME TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE WAR MONGERS, BRIBE TAKERS AND THEIR COILITION OF THE KILLERS USE THE POOR, THE WEAK AND THE HELPLESS AS THE SACRIFICE OF THE LAMB. YES, THE ASSAD FORCES ARE KILLING CIVILIANS AS WELL AS THE THE "GOOD" OR "BAD" REBELS BUT WE MUST NOT FORGET THAT THERE ARE POWERS, CLANS, TRIBES, RELIGIOUS SECTS THAT ACTUALLY STARTED AND PEPETUATED THES CARNAGE. ASSAD NEVER GOT UP AT ANY MORNING AND DECIDED TO ATTACK AND KILL HIS PEOPLE AND IN FACT, IF IT WAS NOT FOR RUSSIA, FROM AMMAN TO CAIRO, LEBANON, SAUDI, TERAN, IRAQ AND BEYOND WOULD HAVE BEEN ON FIRE TODAY. THIS DOES NOT IMPLY THAT I AM SUPPORTING OR TOLORATING THE ACTIONS OF ASSAD OR RUSSIAN. HOWEVER DO NOT FORGET THAT THERE ARE POWERS AND THEIR FRIEND DICTECTORS THAT ARE FUNDING, SUPPLYING AND RECRUITING THE SO-CALLED GOOD REBELS JUST FOR THE PURPOSE OF DESTROYING THEIR ENEMY ASSAD. THE WORLD DOES NOT NEED THESE WARS OF ATTRITIONS THAT IS CRUMBLING THE LIFE AND WELL BEING OF THE NICE BUT POOR PEOPLE IN THAT REGION. LOOK AT HOW SYRIA HAS BEEN CONVERTED INTO A THEATER OF TESTING THE NEW TOYS OF WAR MACHINES. WHO SUFFERS FROM THESE ATTROCITIES? IT IS ALL THE PEOPLE LIVING IN THAT REGION NO MATTER HOW DEEP YOUR BUNKERS MAY BE. IT IS SILLY FOR THE LEADERS IN THAT REGION TO ALLOW THEIR BEAUTIFUL AND MOST HOLLY PLACES BECAUSE ANY ORDERS, ANY FORM OF BRIBES. ENOUGH SHOULD BE ENOUGH AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE WARS IN THAT REGION FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR CHILDRE. IT WILL BE VERY VERY INTERESTING TO CONDUCT CASE CONTROLLED SUDIES ON THE CAUSE-EFFECT OF CHRONIC DISEASES IN THAT REGION NOW AND ANY POST WAR DATA IF AND WHEN THAT COMES. NO ONE EVEN KNOWS WHICH CHEMICALS, RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS, CONTENTS OF THE MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS THAT HAS BEEN USED IN THAT REGION AND ITS ATMOSPHERIC POLUTION EFFECTS AND YET THE WARS GOES ON. FELLOW CHILDREN OF GOD, ITS TIME TO THINK AND SAVE YOUR PEOPLE, YOUR FUTURE AND ENJOY VALUES OF PEACE.
