Fear and Hunger Amid Battle for Aleppo was the headline, meanwhile, Hillary Clinton just continues to yak. By contrast America was not too concerned about Russia’s veto when the US was seeking Gaddafi’s head. There is no time for gentle words, only action. Russia is never going to agree to an embargo, or a military intervention in Syria because Rosoboronexport, the state arms trader for Russia is profiting from a $550 million sale on combat jets to Syria State (August 15,2012 Huffington Post). Oh, that’s right, America really telling Russia like it is, with America’s history of their Military-Industrial Complex selling arms to hostile nations, would make it too obvious that America and Russia are Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb.
At Dodge City, the killer, outlaw gang, call the town’s folk out for a gunfight. We know there’s gonna be lots of blood in the streets, and we know it’s not going to be a fair fight. The outlaw Syria State is sitting in a tank, with helicopters and jets overhead. The townsmen only want to be free, so they go out to meet the killer with only a gun. The EU want a fair fight so call for a EU arms embargo. America, by the evidence of unequipped Syrian resisters, seem to be complying with the EU embargo, and so America, Canada, and the West stand on the sidelines of the fight, cheer loudly for the fighters. Applaud, applaud, the West will give the Syrian freedom fights a few bullets; not too many though. As the battle goes on in the streets of Aleppo or Damascus the freedom fights often have to pull back – not that they do not have the courage, rather because they have run out of bullets. For mercy sake, at least give the fighter weapons that will balance the fight and save the lives of brave fighters and the citizens themselves.
But it’s not just weapons. America, Canada, and the West can do the good talk, but the wounded are in hospitals being operated on with often no pain killers. “We need to take the child’s leg off. Hit him in the head with a rock to knock him out, we have no painkillers to operate.” West, why hasn’t someone, in the 10 months of the State attacking the people, at least gotten some anesthetic for the wounded. Damn the bureaucracies, it should have been there 8 months ago. If it had of been your wives and children, you would have jumped into a jet and flown it over yourselves the very next day. It is true, indifference is often far worse than hatred.
When the civil war is over, you will wonder why the liberators are not buddy buddy with the West; the West has made them wade through far more of their blood than was necessary. They know that despite the West having lots of weapons, the West chose to argue off in a safe room for their safety. The question will remain, why did they simply leave the Syrian people vulnerable? And now with a final question, why is the West so stupid that they do not know that the West, here and now are cultivating a relationship of animosity, resentment and suspicion with all their idle hypocritical chatter.
