About a week ago I came across a link to Horrific videos of what is happening in Syria today. To say that I was disturbed by what I saw is certainly an understatement. I went into my place of work the following day and started to inform my colleagues of what I saw and to tell you the truth I got no reaction from them at all. Totally not interested in any shape or form. I would have got more feedback from a Zombie Horde I kid you not. If I had informed them that Beer or the TV Magazines were going up in price I would have got some reaction that's for sure. I'm not writing this post to gain support for or against what is happening in that country. I just feel that I have to say something about what I saw. Part of what I saw and this is probably not anywhere near the worst, was a family obviously out for the day all walking together. They were using a camcorder to film their family. As far as I could make out it was the Mum and Dad with their son and daughter. Son looked about 14 and the little girl about 5 years old. It was all fun untill the Syrian authorities opened up with their guns from some distant roof tops with exploding bullits and everything turned to chaos. The son was hit in the chest and the father was shot as well. The video showed the son in the middle of the road unable to crawl to his family and the father was too badly hurt to reach his son. The mother was trying to protect the daughter. You see the son slowly dying and his dad could only watch on. This was filmed from the camcorder which was just lying in the road which was obviously dropped. This was not a demonstration of any kind. just people out walking. The other stuff that I viewed is pretty horrific, from torture victims to mass killings in the streets. I will not be posting any of the stuff that I saw but suffice to say that I'm very glad myself and my family stay in the UK, a million miles away from that tortured land. I was in Syria some years ago and found it quite wellcoming. Iv'e spent nights in the desert and even spent a night in a Roman Amphitheatre out in the middle of nowhere, all very magical. Syrians are just the same as you and me. They have hopes and dreams as well and don't deserve to be slaughtered into oblivion. As far as I can make out this whole scenario is down to the people of Syria only wanting a bit of what we take for granted and that is called Freedom and a bit of Democracy in their land but their Leader President Bashar al-Assad wants to keep the people down in the gutter and to claim all for himself. It's unbelievable that this Medievil Crap still goes on in these so called modern times. I hope these writings don't offend or bore anyone. Like I said, I only wanted to tell you of something that I saw the other night. The video is only pics of Syria and some folk music.
