    Alot of stuff is happening in the International community in regards to Syria atm. There is heavy talk of military incursions from America against the established government. The Americans are apparently saying that the Government of Syria has used chemical weapons against it's citizens, while the British media is saying sources point to the Rebel forces being the ones who used the chemical weapons. As a result of more internal pressure, Britain has decalred they will not participate in military actions against Syria. Russia in turn is sending Naval warships down to the Mediterranean, as they believe any military actions against the Syrian government will distabalise the area.
    Reports are stating that on August 21, a chemical weapon attack took place in which Syrian citizens were killed. The confusing part is the sheer inconsistancy in reports. The UN is apparently acknolweding 300+ people died (source The americans are declaring 1,400+ people have died.(sources - source - )

    Anyhow yeah.... that's what they're saying.

    It's just one giant mess, and it will bode the UK well to stay well out of it. Everything is so blurred and unclear. If Assad was the one who was behind the attacks, why would he do it when the UN inspectors were already there and do it right under their noses? But if he was not behind it, then who was? The rebels? Where would they get chemical weapons such as Sarin from, other countries supporting them perhaps?

    I have a very bad feeling about this, which is why I am glad the UK is not sending their military out there.

    Just look at what was released by (the citizens hero) manning. firing indiscriminately on citizens seems to happen a lot, it would only breed yet more hate filled potential terrorists.
    The only difference between the west and terrorists is the funding and organisation.

    There is a considerable disconnection from the reasons of why there is conflict in that region, and a pure emphasis on the expression of violence.

    It's frustrating because violence will never deal with the issues. And in a more realistic nature, it makes it stew, extending longer than it needs to be, explode, and in turn create new reasons to hate and retaliate. It also does nothing when an outside presence continues to interfere and kill in a region instead of purely helping. just prolongs that hatred of two nations who don't really know eachother, but hate eachother none the less.
