I realize I will make many people angry for “politicizing” the Syrian debacle BUT in the face of the current Syrian tragedy we need to be mindful of our own complicity in their pain. Equally horrible is the fact that you are being emotionally manipulated into ignoring the root causes of this humanitarian disaster by the blatant over use of the photos of the dead baby. They want you to believe that the crisis just happened. That it just started. Of course that is not the case. It has been fermenting for years. In the political shadows the United States has been the quiet Puppet Master.
When you see that drowned Syrian boy, you should be seeing, instead, the immoral failure of see the United States’ foreign policy since 9/11. We as a nation have contributed greatly to the agony of the Syrian people.
This has everything to do with how and why we elect leaders in the USA. We elected people who were hell bent on keeping the region unstable. We need to learn from Syria and Iraq and stop putting people in office who’s only interest is in regime change.
Stop putting people in office who created the mess in the first place.
