Last sentence a 3-year-old Syrian said before he died: “I’m gonna tell God everything”
It’s impossible to verify but the picture tells a story about the pain and suffering that exists in Syria right now. There are many in the media who would like to say this is because president Bashar al-Assad is a ruthless killer. And that’s half true. Like other government leaders he has engaged in war and with that war has come the death of tens of thousands and the displacement of over 1 million Syrians now living in refugee camps.
But this hasn’t always been the case. This is the inevitable result of a covert war being waged by the U.S., Israel and other Sunni countries like Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Our interests in taking down the Syrian dictator al-Assad are all about geo politics. If we take out Syria we neuter Iranian influence in the region. It has gotten so bad that al Qaeda is now fighting on the same side as the United States government and Bashar al Assad and his government are fighting al Qaeda. And Syrians are all the victim of this massive global covert proxy war.
It has gotten to the point where we don’t even know if the chemical weapons that were used in Syria were the result of al Qaeda or the Syrian government. When it comes to matters of intelligence and propaganda it’s very hard to discern truth from fiction. But no one can deny that Syria was a very stable country until we decided to go in all guns blazing. We’re not bringing democracy to the world that’s the sound of imperialism baby.
