Hi there peeps..
It seems to me that many of us on the internet are quite content to give our views, opinions and interpretations of what is happening in Syria.
However it is difficult to tell what the real truth is.. We do not live there. We are not immediately or directly affected by this. We are not living
day to day in fear of our lives. We are comfortably sat behind our screens watching the massacre unfold. But they are not. Men, women and children are
dead, in pain and suffering. Many are missing and many have been displaced. And many more innocent people will die if the US decides to put its boots
on and stomp on their homeland...
So maybe we should see what the Syrian people have to say. Or at least what one Syrian mother has to say...
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

The Syrian children have experienced first hand a lot of pain during the past 30 months, more than what you can imagine.
They have seen people getting killed, they have witnessed their loved ones die in front of their eyes, they have seen blood and atrocities they would
never think of.
Some of them suffered injuries due to the indiscriminate shelling of the regime, others live in refugee camps, or they are under the threat of
destroying their houses over their heads by a criminal shell.
The Syrian children deserve to live a decent life, just like any other kids in this small world.
At one of the refugee camps, children were asked to draw something to express themselves.
This boy drew the picture that was engraved in his mind when he and his family ran away from the shelling of the criminal forces of Assad.
When they asked him what does his drawing mean, he cried. He tried to draw how his family was killed altogether.
Families in al-Ghouta are desperately searching for their loved ones. How painful can it be to look at the dead faces one by one knowing they have
families that are looking for them too. How painful can it be to look at all the beautiful faces dreading to see if it is your child, or father, or
mother, sister or brother, grandfather or uncle, grandmother or aunt, a cousin or a friend??
Roughly 2 years and 4 months since the start of the revolution:
120.000 people (including 8500 children and 6500 women).
200.000 missing or detained.
6.5 million people displaced inside Syria.
3.5 million living in other countries.
We are still counting, and the world is still watching...
We need to do more than just sit on our backsides and share information. What is happening is wrong and completely unjust. Remember what Aaron Russo
said.. Tell your government you are MAD AS HELL..!!!
Myself and friends have decided to stage a protest at our local MP's office. We live on a tiny island off the West Coast of Scotland. But we want our
government to listen. We want our voices heard. But more importantly, PEOPLE OF AMERICA now is the time to tell your blood thirsty leader that this is
WRONG and you are all MAD AS HELL..!!! It is YOUR country that is wanting to start another war and massacre many more of your innocent brothers and
sisters. We are all one and the same. We all have 5.5litres of blood. And we all bleed the same colour.
Tell ##Obama## Tell the world. If we all do this TOGETHER then we could make a change. We are much stronger in numbers.
It might be easy to break one pencil. But try breaking seven together...
I don't want another war. But this seems like Iraq all over again. How many times is this going to happen before it comes knocking on our door. Karma
has a funny way of showing its face sometimes...
