Humanitarians To The Syrian People: “Drop Dead”

0 Shares

Where are the humanitarians where Syria is concerned?

The United States, France and Great Britain asked for and received permission from the U.N. to bomb cities loyal to Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, ostensibly to stop the killing of rebels whose military action against the government was being decisively thwarted by Libya’s regular army. Apparently, it’s a humanitarian act to kill some to prevent the killing of others.

For some reason, that doesn’t seem to hold true in Syria, where hundreds of protestors have been slaughtered by the military and untold numbers of others have simply disappeared. It seems that since Syrian President Bashar Assad is a “reformer” (Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s words), he gets a pass to kill his own people without the military-industrial complex going into hyperdrive to obliterate his country.

Or could there be another reason Western powers are interested in Libya, but not Syria?

Could it be that Libya was capable of producing more than 1.6 million barrels of oil per day before the rebellion began, but Syria is a minor leaguer in oil production at 386,000 barrels per day?

Now, we know what lives are worth to the U.N.: about 1.2 million barrels of oil a day.
