In the interests of presenting as fair and complete a picture as I can for this thread on where she was working and the situation this Lady gave her
life to cover, I bring a link to the latest Cryptome photo set from the Rebels in Aleppo.
It's important to note, on a political basis, I'm unchanged in my view and feelings about this over all situation and the place of the Rebels or
Assad for that matter.
However, I'm trying to keep politics out of this, for my own part, in presenting a simple view of what is happening there and what it looks like from
the perspective of the average guy, as a part of the events.....and of course, one very courageous reporter who I don't consider politics in either
Free Syrian Army Photos 2
As a mild warning, some of these are graphic by Western standards, but nothing as bad as the average war movie or horror flick has. Nothing gory that
a child would have nightmares by seeing. I'll never be the source of links to photos of that nature. These show the dead, but in as respectful way as
I've seen....and obviously, not by major Media. Cryptome is a fairly solid source for on-the-scene material for events all over the globe and usually
from a perspective unique to their offerings.
For those who may have trouble with loading the whole thing, here are a couple from the set which are entirely clean of material anyone may find
unpleasant over dinner or the like. They are BIG...so I've made Image links for the single images this time.
and finally, one I think is representative of the whole thing, in this narrow apolitical look at the scene.
It appears it may have been someone's living room, before war came. Perhaps a recently as 2010, a scene for laughter or Birthday parties. We can't
know either way, but perhaps a doctor, or lawyer or just a street sweeper once lived there in times of peace. Now, it's a place to exploit for sniper
fire down onto those they call their enemy. The furniture someone likely saved up to buy once, now items to collapse on for a few minutes of
rest.....and a surface for leverage to get a better view and line of fire to what lies below.
Whatever side someone takes regarding the fall of Syria, I'd hope we can all at least agree on this. It's a human tragedy and one very real and
without concern for side or flag when it comes to the individuals who now live in a world torn by fighting.
However it turns out..I hope it gets there soon for the sake of everyone there.
