What is lost in the discussion of the holocaust that is unfolding in Syria, is the suffering of the innocent Syrian people. Even with the conflict is just getting warmed up, an estimated 100,000 Syrians have been brutally murdered. These events are buried as a whisper in the mainstream media regarding this human tragedy.
Don’t make the mistake of looking for government to either care about or try to minimize the loss of life. Expression of humanity starts with you and me. There is no humanity in government and there never will be.
We listened to president Obama tell the nation that he was going to approach Congress about attacking Syria. However, at the end of the day, Obama will still attack Syria because he, as I have pointed out, is being blackmailed by the bankers who are holding six Watergate-type events over his presidency (e.g. Benghazi) and he is compelled to save the Petrodollar by eradicating Syria and Iran.
I am Syrian and a mother. since about 2 years, this proxy war installed by the USA and her western, Turkish and Arab lackeys, is devastating my homeland and killing my people. I have lost several friends. Your mercenaries shot at me and I got wounded.
Some days ago, my daughter, aged 15, said, it was better we’d die now rather than suffering the rest of our lifetime as she expects this war won’t end. What shall I say to her, at the eve of a huge war to come? That life can be nice, in case the greedy US-Imperialism would allow you to live?
This woman also chastised my lack of overt support for Assad given the complexities of the situation.
And, please, Sir! do not name Assad that negatively, recognizing that even your CIA had to admit (and reported it) that he has the utter loyalty of about 70 percent of the Syrian people – how much support can Obama gain in the USA? So are we Syrians dumb to follow a ‘dictator’? No – we are united with our families, friends, our sons and husbands serving in our army to DEFEND our homeland. Every US-American would do the same if the USA was attacked. And we stand with our president as we realized he does his duty to defend his people. You do not need to be a fan of someone in order to be fair.
I want all of you to pause for a moment and consider that if this woman was writing to us from Kansas City, would we feel her pain more intensely than we do for a Syrian woman writing to me on behalf of her family and fellow citizens who speak a different language and live thousands of miles away in a foreign culture?
This Syrian mother went on to say…
Regards from a Syrian female, mother, patriot (temporarily staying in Europe)
American taxpayers have fueled the Syrian Civil War by providing $117 million in communications and medical equipment to the opposition. We can be assured we’ve contributed more in other ways not on the books. The United States is then funding our own sworn enemies and their affiliates. These are supposed to be America’s foes. These dangerous terrorists we have sacrificed blood, treasure and liberty to defeat are now our allies by proxy.
Syrians are culturally moderate people that reject extremist ideologies. Religious fascists had no platform or power until recently. The Muslim Brotherhood were pushed out in the 80’s. Ancient Christian and Muslim sects lived, worked and loved in harmony.
The awesome power of social media provided me with an extraordinary opportunity to gain some insight. Via Facebook, Hussam Mahmoud Darwish, a 17-year-old medical student in Latakia, Syria contacted me hoping to communicate the reality of the war to a westerner.
This arrived in my inbox at 9 p.m. on Wednesday night: “Hello dear journalist! I’m a Syrian citizen. I just wanted to show you some videos about my country Syria. I’m Muslim and I’m not a terrorist. These videos are of my killed Dad. These are the Islamic terrorists we face in Syria. I don’t know why your country (USA) and president (Obama) stand with these monsters,” he wrote.

I think though that's the ops point, both lives will be lost, that Syrian lives are just as valuable as American, EQUAL and can't you for one minute imagine you were in their shoes as well?
I am confused when you say this is to keep America free..??? What has killing people 6000 miles away got to do with keeping America free..?
