Syria marks revolt anniversary amid violence
How are we going to sleep, when Syrian Pres.Assad (Who apparently was taught how to by Iran) makes the final push tomorrow or one of these days? After a whole year of showcasing how to violently oppress and murder a nation.....est. 75000 dead, mostly civilians killed by the army! It started by people peacefully demonstrating for democracy in the streets, mowed down by army and rooftop snipers
The West has already proven how to ignore the ordeal of a nation; Exactly the same way we turn away from ... Let's say; The daily aggression of Israel towards the people of Gaza, with occasionally a few days/ months of Blitzkrieg thrown in, now and then, just for good measure....
And as in Gaza and the West Bank;
Nothing, we do nothing, to save any of them! We watch the tapes of children running, dying, mothers crying and entire neighborhoods being blown to smithereens every night on our TV screens! Brought to us by a handful courageous western reporters (now even fewer) and your über courageous Average Jodalla/Jasmine turned Citizen journalist, some of them dying in the attempt to broadcast uncensored news and images, battling for our lazy focus in between poppy teenagers, with mono-thematic dreams of celebrity, mixed with images of "leading" populist politicians bobbing and weaving, ducking and diving any kind of questions, eluding us an answer that might show a shadow of a stance, or maybe even a speck of an opinion that hasn't been dictated by the voters! Voters, who somehow always will be lead by the lowest common denominator; i.e. Fear and all its derivatives...
"After such knowledge, what forgiveness....?"
