“The images show that 97 percent of electricity has been cut off in Aleppo province, and 96 percent went out in Raqqa, a region under the control of the Islamic State (IS, previously ISIS/ISIL). The lights across Syria have been slowly dimming since the civil war began in 2011. The fighting has destroyed schools, hospitals and homes.”
Thanks to the Syria Civil War the people living in that country are losing any standard of living. Who makes these decisions to go to war and destroy so much? Does no one think of preserving anything?
And who’s to blame? This question has to be asked. Accountability has to be pinned somewhere, on someone. Who is responsible should be clear: the U. S.
The Syrian War continues unabated. The number of Syrian refugees out of the country is huge, over 2.5 million. They are flowing into neighboring countries and enduring tough conditions. An estimated 4 million Syrians are displaced inside the country, and 6 million Syrians need help. The war dead in Syria number approximately 200,000.
The neocons have supported the war to bring down Assad from the outset. They count the misery endured by Syrian refugees, which particularly affects children, as nothing. Nothing at all. They regularly call for greater American intervention in this war. In 2011 and 2012, they renewed their calls for the U.S. to intervene more deeply than it already has. U.S. allies in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states have been supporting the rebel groups materially. These groups are now dominated by Islamic fundamentalists.
