I am sure many Syrians have experienced the definition of sufferings. Not just the Syrian mother. The USA might not be directly involved. But Obomber
seems to have set his sights on 'helping' Syria.
The USA does not get blamed for everything. It gets blamed for the things it has done... And it should be held to account. As should any
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 want to contribute on this because it seems that people forget too easily.
Date of the chemical attack:
The question is central to arguments being made this week by both proponents and opponents of a military strike to punish Syria over its alleged use
of nerve gas in an Aug. 21 attack on rebel strongholds near eastern Damascus.
Next quote will be from an article posted on Jul 8, 2013:
Both the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees have expressed reservations behind closed doors at the effort by President Barack
Obama's administration to support the insurgents by sending them military hardware.
None of the military aid that the United States announced weeks ago has arrived in Syria, according to an official from an Arab country and Syrian
Democrats and Republicans on the committees worry that weapons could reach factions like the Nusra Front, which is one of the most effective rebel
groups but has also been labeled by the United States as a front for al Qaeda in Iraq.
I can look up for more if this isn't enough,I'm sure there's plenty others.
And now something odd:
I just looked for british aid to the rebels and I found this:
In a written ministerial statement, Mr Hague said: "There is evidence of attacks using chemical weapons in Syria - including sarin.
"We believe that the use of chemical weapons is sanctioned and ordered by the Assad regime.
"I explained on 10 July that we are exploring the possibility of supplying the Syrian opposition protective equipment against chemical and biological
weapons use and yesterday I laid a minute before Parliament providing more detail on these plans.
Does anyone know if there was any serious reason to be afraid of possible chemical attacks? If there isn't then some people shot their own feet.
EDIT: Btw,I'm not trying to start a hate-fest against the US. As far as I can see,the majority of the american people have learned something from the
previous war schemes. I just find it unfair to deny some things.
