As the death toll grows in Syria, so do the desperate pleas for help.
The United States, the European Union, the Arab League and Turkey are all enforcing sanctions against Bashar Al-Assad’s Syrian regime, but the violence has only worsened in recent weeks and there is hesitancy for the U.N. Security Council and the Nations to intervene militarily.
We don’t know the opposition well enough; Al-Assad still has strong support in his country; Geography is an issue; Sanctions could still work; Last week China and Russia veto: So many excuses for the Nations not to intervene. Meantime, people, innocent people are dying.
The key question now is, how long do we wait?
Today, the death toll is approaching 8,000, with 60,000 detained and 20,000 missing. With people dying every day, when do we say enough is enough?
Personally, I don’t give a shit about political and religious leaders dying; I don’t give a shit about soldiers dying while shooting civilians, innocent women and children. I only hope that in Syria, like for in any other countries in the world, economic difficulties will soon turn more and more of “We, the People”, against all the pseudo democratic, capitalist communist, socialist and religious dictatorships of this world.
Once the middle class fully joins the ongoing worldwide uprisings, all the Bashar Al-Assads of this world are goners.
