The Darkness Visible Continued
the United Nations is broken. Their so called "peace keeping" goals in
Syria is failing miserably. The country of Syria is enduring the worst
case of what can only be described as genocide. Yet the world has turned
away and thrown their money behind some good will UN policy that will
never stop a single death in Syria.
The lion is on the
prowl today as I write this. The Butcher of Damascus is at this moment
using Russian provided attack helicopters to strike villages around Homs
and Homs itself. Bashar al-Assad will use Iranian provided snipers to
keep these areas under his control. Innocent civilians will be killed
before I can finish this post.
Many of you have simply
ignored this subject for many reasons. One being that you think that
this "civil war" is not or can not be called Genocide. So for the last
time I will define why Syria has been added to the long list of
genocides in our wretched past.
Bashar al-Assad belongs
to an Islamic sect known as Alawite Shia. The vast majority of his
country's population however are Shiite Muslims. This has been one of
the major motivators in al-Assad's brutality against his own people. And
that is why, plain and simple, this is genocide.
Now onto what is happening and why the world isn't watching.
Butcher of Damascus has been employing the use of mercenaries from
within his country and beyond his borders. The most feared of all are
the Shabiha (in Arabic, "Ghost"). These are the "clean up crew" in
Bashar's bloody war against his own citizens.
have been described as "steroid fueled gorillas" who wield AK 47s and
machetes. And due to the "come and get it" policy Bashar's bank account
has had for the last six months, the Shabiha are now fiercely loyal to
the Bashar regime.
According to the handful of accounts
leaking out of the locked down country the Shabiha move into a town or
village that has just been shelled or bombed out by the Syrian military.
Any helpless women and children are usually targeted first by the
Shabiha. Next the men who have survived the attacks by the Bashar
military are marched out by the "Ghost" and killed as brutally as
possible. This exact method is seen in Darfur by the Janjaweed (in
Arabic, "Devils on Horseback").
In other attacks
Damascus's Nero has used his newly found toys (Russian provided) to
cover the streets by hovering overhead. During this time the Iranian
provided snipers move in and take up post throughout the city. Next
comes the Syrian paramilitary forces who attack any points of resistance
the population may be able to provide. Finally the the death squads
move in and flush the city of any Shiite Muslims and feed them into
sniper fire while butchering any that try to flee or resist.
of the time however Bashar's forces use artillery and attack
helicopters to strike random villages to subdue any organizing that
might be taking place. Random appearances of these Russian attack
helicopters also serve to keep the level of terror up in and around
Damascus itself. They also are used to light fires in villages that
Bashar fears "rebels" might be passing through.
has earned Bashar the title Nero. His fear of his own people has led
him to this point. He is leading a campaign to destroy his own
countrymen. And nobody is doing a thing to stop it.
United States is suffering from the cowardice of its President. Obama
was willing to help topple other leaders in the region when they were
already on their way out. But now he is faced with a real threat to our
promise "Never Again". Now Obama sets back and waits to see how this
fight will play out. And maybe, just maybe, if the Free Syrian Army can
fight back against Bashar.... then Obama just might "help".
This is the symptom of having a President who is only out to make a name for himself. You get cowards like Bashar and Obama.
for Europe, the French started this "Peace Keeping" plan with the goal
of bringing about some form of glory for Paris. In stopping genocide
their is no glory to be found. When we stopped the Nazis their was only
the sickening reality of what mankind was capable of. It is not a
pleasant task and yet it is the most important responsibility we have
ever been charged with.
This is the weak point in
European glory seekers. This sort of tiptoeing through the minefield is
all we can expect when the Europeans are unwilling to stand up to Russia
and Iran. Let alone their lack of spine when it comes to military
intervention in Syria.
So who is fighting for Syria?
The Free Syrian
Army, an army of civilians organized to defeat the oppression of Bashar
al-Assad, are the only force attempting to protect the innocent. They
are however the excuse used to label this as a "civil war". It appears
that anytime a populace arms itself to defend against aggression the
world takes the opportunity to step back and claim ignorance.
at Alder's Ledge we will be constantly updating you on this genocide.
We will continue to scream for those the world has left voiceless. Check
in with us on FaceBook and here on the blog. Bare witness and share
every post. It is important that we not remain silent as innocent
Syrians suffer at the hands of the Nero of Damascus.
