I think it was right to keep keep the pressure on the rebels. My husband and I discussed this this morning. Would it be right to allow the warring to continue with untold civilian casualties.
I pointed out out that during the Second World War both the Germans and British bombed civilian towns. To huge loss of life. To untold acts of bravery from civilillians. Better that it is over quickly than protracted.
Now we must all find out how we can help to rebuild this war torn country. People like me are heartbroken over this conflict. This loss of life.
I have always felt that President Assad was and is the rightful head of state for Syria. However this does not mean I think he should remain unless a genuine vote is made for His premiership, and for his family to continue as the ruling patriarchs. This is Syria's business.
If Syria wishes to have a dictator type president then their constitution and preference should be respected.
I tried to explain to my husband that all this unrest started with that huge party thrown by the Shah of Iran. The excessive extravagance coupled with the diplomatic protocols of the party left all the heads of states and Royals angry with Iran. Most people attending even took the phones to stay in touch.
The Shah raised up a Spiritual entity of Cyrus though. From this Spiritual twin whirlwind has developed the unrest through the Arab world. Is this what our Middle Eastern world truly wants?
Jesus said a man cannot serve two masters. These are wise words from a prophet.
I believe tha Arabian world should be united in peace. To be a player on the world stage collectively as an economic power, a place to visit for the cultural heritage and way of life that is so exotic to us westerners. We must respect each other. Cherish our differences, and stay within the boundary lines that God has given us to enjoy.
I want to visit so many places that have given us the beginnings of astronomy, mathematics, medicine, and art. With so much devastated by war, I hope there may be some of the worlds greatest antiquities still intact.
To add in a further political flavour, Russia has shown herself to be a formidable player on the world stage. All the USA can do is fight a war of propaganda against the real and decisive part Russia has played in this current proxy war.
Russia are masters of Chess, the art of war. I pointed out to my Husband this morning that Russia doesn't need to go to war with Europe, they just have to stop supplying gas and oil to bring us all to our senses. That's why all these sanctions are ridiculous and just sabre rattling for the political machine to justify creating a European army.
Russia has demonstrated her capabilities in a minor skirmish in the scheme of world wars. Russia is fully capable of defending, or indeed launching outright offensive against world powers. Rather like that Japanese Akita dog President Putin was treating with the utmost respect. Yes it did tricks for treats, but one word and the dog would have been capable of defending by attack.
I said to my husband, you can be sure if Europe has an army they will try to go to war with Russia. Do we want this? I don't think so
Anyway I watched the video on RT of President Putin and his Akita dog, that the Japanese gifted to him. It was a handful dog that I saw. That dog has been trained by a dog whisperer. The Japanese gave President Putin a killer dog. I can see it in the dog. The Japanese were terrified of it!
Just goes to show what consistency, and excellent dog handling skills can do with a dog that is bred to be the ultimate killing weapon. This dog would never have been brought into the room unless President Putin had been trained to handle it. You never stare this dog in the eyes, you lead it out of the room with a handful of treats in your pocket. Even President Putin had to glance back to see the dog was following him.
When an ancient Spiritual force has been awakened, like Cyrus, it can only be overcome by spiritual strength. Not war.
Lets hope humanity learns a few lessons about its own potential for war and peace from this Syrian conflict.
