News story: Foreign Secretary appalled by reports of massacre in Syria

Ministry of Defence said:
Commenting on reports of a massacre in Jdaidet al-Fadl, a suburb of Damascus, in which more than 85 civilians, including women and children, were reportedly killed by Government forces, Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
I am appalled by the reports of the killing by Syrian Government forces of dozens of people, including women and children, in the town of Jdaidet Al-Fadl, a suburb of Damascus. This is yet another reminder of the callous brutality of the Assad regime and the terrible climate of impunity inside Syria.
It underlines the urgent need to bring the conflict in Syria to an end. At the Friends of Syria Core Group meeting with the Syrian opposition National Coalition in Istanbul we agreed to redouble efforts to reach a political resolution and increase support to the opposition, and I will be discussing these efforts with European Foreign Ministers today.

Bombs in Damascus killing dozens and nobody gives a shit.

Bombs in Boston killing a few and everyone jumps on the bandwagon (see that particular thread).

What a wonderful world we live in... :oops:

We don't intervene in countries that need our help. Only the ones we believe can help us.

Daily death and living in caves it is for the foreseeable future Syria, sorry.

Syrian exports (according to the CIA Worldbook):

"crude oil, minerals, petroleum products, fruits and vegetables, cotton fiber, textiles, clothing, meat and live animals, wheat"

So give it time...

Sadly I don't think the populous have time.

I don't mean for the Syrians to produce those exports - I meant it won't be long before the vultures are swarming for lucrative business contracts to be signed with some who are not qualified to be running such businesses, if you know what I mean... :oops:
 
It's always difficult getting involved in the internal politics of a Sovereign State. There is often confusion over matters of scale and legal basis. Remember that there were some civilised people who viewed/view the "troubles" in Ulster as an equal to what happens now in various parts of the Middle East, Africa and Asia. They clearly aren't, but like many of you, I see it from a particular angle.

Just suppose some ethnic minority group kicks off within our own shores demanding self determination or special treatment. The Law and Constitution directs how we deal with such an event and would probably end in riot shields and the slammer. It wouldn't take much manipulation for the rest of the world to see that in a different light. The point I'm making is that the Government has to be careful and clever in how it deals with unrest and injustice abroad.
