Syrian war 'damaging a generation of children', United Nations warns
Updated November 30, 2013 11:50:25
«Hundreds of thousands of children caught up in Syria's brutal civil war are having their "innocence ruthlessly exploited", many of them having suffered physical and psychological harm, a new report warns.
The report by the United Nations, based on a four-month study in Lebanon and Jordan, has highlighted the devastating wider impact the conflict is having.
It found that more than 1.1 million Syrian children are registered as refugees, with 75 per cent under the age of 12, and that these children face a shocking degree of loneliness, isolation and insecurity.
"Too many [children] have been wounded physically, psychologically or both," wrote the report authors.
"The suffering is really out of proportion with anything I have known until now.
UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres»
Comment: Well, of course - but not just. We see by the pictures that get out, that the whole of Syria is being blown to bits. Just like Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan etc., and Q: Who's 'leading' this vicious destruction? A: No other than the US rogue-regime. We know - not from the corrupt&venal MSM + PFBCs, but from observers' reports bypassing the MSM + PFBCs, that the US foments trouble, subverts governments, here that of Assad in Syria, encourages, finances, arms & assists Al-Qaeda et al. mercenaries = US sponsors terrorism, as does KSA and Qatar (F+UK as possible, probable extras), then imports the terrorists into Syria via TR and JOR. All that is *now* known; we can be sure that similar happened before the internet allowed us to bypass the MSM + PFBCs which act as 'news'-gatekeepers.
Now: Some try to put all the blame on Assad, alleging that he's killing his own people. Yeah; right. Just like Saddam did, the Taliban do, Gaddafi did, as did Ahmadinejad, and Rouhani will. Propaganda, anyone? *Lying* propaganda? No doubt anyone the US attacks is a complete villain?
Especially since the Wesley Clark 'leak,' from shortly after 9/11, 2001: “We’re going to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran..."
We can also assume that there are a lot of well-meaning people working for UN agencies, like Mr Guterres quoted above (nothing at all against him or his ilk).
But: The UN agencies bluster, instead of doing what they are there for, namely to *prevent* war.
And: Where are the decent people, those who should be outraged by the US, as so-called 'world leader,' who, instead of leading the world to peace, actually leads other rogue-regimes into vicious, murdering-to-steal crimes?
Why, mostly, this utterly gruesome silence?
^ Update, 1Dec'13; PS & Fazit:
There is a principle; "the greatest happiness of the greatest number" (Mill, Bentham, utilitarianism.) This is rejected by those who run the US regime (plus sycophant regimes), *proving* that all such regimes are *not* "of, by, for the people" democracies, therefore they more approximate tyrannies. In addition, the two worst rogue-regimes deploy 'murder for spoil' as one of their main modi operandi. The result is massive *unhappiness* wherever their bombs and bullets strike; notably Syria (this post) and Palestine, plus the wider ME (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, etc., Iran under constant threat.)
This unhappiness would largely be wound back, IF the aggressively invading US & Zs would simply take their guns & bombs and vacate their crime-scenes. Go home, Yanks; return to whence you came, Zionists. Oh, and as you leave, pay fully acceptable recompense/reparations.
Now *that* would be truth + justice = peace.
