The children told harrowing accounts of their experiences and that of their peers and recounted incidents of torture: of being used by the army as human shields on tanks, of having their fingernails pulled off and being burned with cigarette stubs.
Grown men actually do this in Syria? on children? way to go. no matter what side. And hanging children in their arms from the ceiling and beating them? who the hell does that?
Some quite brutal men in Syria. Must have had tough childhoods themselves to just stomach stuff like torturing children and now they seem intent on creating the next generation psychologically unstable individuals. Way to go Syria you are about halfway there already.
Hate to be cynical but the biggest problem here is the amount of refugees and broken human beings this creates. It's gonna cost a lot to fix a fuckup of this scale. Neither US nor Europe is built of money anymore. Doubt any Western country is even interested in long term peace-keeping commitment in the area just because of the huge cost.
If the people in the region cared about their fellow man maybe they could use the oil billions in a more constructive way. It's easy to try to shift away responsibilty to the West whenever there is a conflict.
Europe and US is done as world powers anyway, we cant solve the problem of others with money borrowed from the chinese. Arabs should solve their own problems, just dont bring them over to Europe.
Not done but weakened. And if people thought US was good at exploiting just wait until China knocks on your door. A weak country full of problems will always be exploited. It's time to man up for Syria and understand that only themselves can fix their own country, and on that fixlist is probably to have an educated and well-trained army that doesn't torture children. If they need Western help for such fundamentals then we're not looking at a few years or even a decade to fix Syria. We are looking at a century or longer.
