WEST KURDSTAN (SYRIA)
Seth J. Frantzman 3 Dec 2019
Because of the disgusting and shameful impunity given to every country involved in Syria, these civilians were murdered; and the only fact is that “both sides” are competing to see who can kill the most. There is a third side that doesn’t kill civilians, but it is the side that the US betrayed and which isn’t allowed to participate in Geneva and which is excluded.
Russia and Turkey have partitioned Syria, with Iran getting some also. But these countries and their fake “ceasefires” don’t want to stop the violence, for them the “ceasefire” is where you send the Syrian Arab Army (regime), the Syrian National Army (Turkish backed) and Syrian Democratic Forces (Kurdish and US backed) to fight each other, like some horrid example of a boxing match where the world watches innocent people be crushed.
Why do people in Ayn Issa or Tel Temr or Tal Rifaat or Maaret al-Numan have to pay this price?
They did nothing. So, they didn’t sign on with Turkey or Russia. Some paid the price for putting their faith in the US to protect them, until the US told its NATO ally “no problem, attack.”
But the kids pay the price. They did nothing wrong. Some are born in Kobani, or in Maaret al-Numan, but they didn’t do anything.
And this disgusting thing called the “UN” and the “NATO” and these awful powers in Europe, called the “EU”…they do nothing to help.
They could help. They could enforce a REAL ceasefire. There could be REAL consequences for harming civilians. But the world is so cynical that no one cares. Everyone says “oh, it’s Syria, who cares.”
