The Syrian people are taking a stand, so are their oppressors, what's the world doing?
The Assads seem to have stumbled on an effective strategy that is allowing them to commit mass murder in plain daylight and as the entire world watches without fearing any repercussions or consequences: it’s called willful blindness. To help matters, they create cover stories about armed gangs of infiltrators and international conspiracies, stories that only the willingly blind will fail to see how transparently bogus they are. They have also resorted to the old custom of body-snatching to hide traces of their crimes, or at least the extent of their crimes, knowing that this will prove enough for the willingly blind to play along and pretend that this situation is not as serious.
But the situation is serious. And the death toll is around a 1,000 now, with hundreds more missing and presumed dead, and hundreds more under arrest and definitely getting tortured. How more serious does the situation needs to get before the international community react? Or has the entire been invaded by the willfully blind?
Serious economic sanctions and travel bans against Syrian officials need to be implemented now, Assads global assets must be frozen, and a message should be sent to the Assads telling them clearly that the time has come for them to leave.
There is no other way out of this situation. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluding himself. Syrians will not accept to be ruled by murderers and thugs anymore. It’s time for the body-snatchers to go.
