In March 2011, the people of Syria took to the streets to protest after a group of students who displayed anti-government messages were brutally tortured by their government. In response to the protest, Syrian’s government responded with martial law, killing anybody that would dare talk against the government.
These actions sparked anger among the people, and protests spread throughout the country, giving a steady rise to a revolution and leaving a country in civil war. “President” (I use the term lightly) Bashar al-Assad, decided to deploy the army into his own country, killing civilians in the search for total power over the country.
Luckily some of Mr. al-Assad’s troops decided that killing civilians was inhuman and turned against their government. Ever since the turning of some troops against Mr. al-Assad’s government, Syria has been a divided country seeking help and support from international governments.
However, Western governments as well as Arab governments have refused to recognize the National Syrian Council, due to their inability to communicate ideas among themselves. The United Nations has miserably tried to place sanctions (a euphemism for “harsh” words) on the current Syrian government, however this has not stopped the current government from killing their own people.
Despite all the evidence piling against Mr. al-Assad’s government, international governments refuse to interfere with the killings. Within the international stage, two countries specifically– China and Russia–have stood against any interference from outside governments, saying that government self-reform must be given a chance.
Personally, I think this is the biggest pile of shit I have ever heard, as usual, while politicians move their jaws amongst themselves, civilians keep dying at the hand of a government that gives two shits about its people. You know, as humans, we must always police each other, especially when innocent people die for the power thirst of one man. We have to put an end to this bullshit the day before yesterday, yet politicians stand idly by as civilians die for their human rights.
I’ve said this before, but I shall remind you again and leave you with a quote from one of my favorite movies “The Boondock Saints” — “We must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.”
