Democracy in Syria. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA v7n2 p0903

Syria has a top-level government preferred by the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe and other countries that are in chaos. Syria had a president for 30 years who decided that he was the only possible president, but luckily, had sons who could take over in the unlikely event of his death.

Mr Assad sr did die, but not before his first-born son, who he had molded to take over via democratic elections.  Mr Assad sr stayed alive long enough to recall his second son from England, where he been happily preserving the eyesight of Britons after training as an eye surgeon, sent him to the army and trained him to be president of life. When Mr Assad sr died, Mr Assad jr was 34, and Syria had a constitution saying the president had to be 40. The legislature changed the age of assuming the presidency to 34, and Mr Assad jr took his place.

Elections? Of course. Mr Assad has access to the news media and the finances and the army. A law was passed in 2007 mandating all conversations in internet cafes be reported. So how does anyone inside Syria know what is going in? Cell phones? I don't know.

I have been trying to find press releases from the Syrian government, expressing condolences for the deaths of over 1,400 citizens in a gas attack on Aug 21. I have not seen anything that is in English that could in any way reassure the West that the deaths were a ghastly mistake or had nothing to do with them. None. If I find anything I will post it.

Syrian Arab Republic

No place for children. Stop supplying weapons, stop the war, rebuild Syria and bring the children back.

Syria: genocide or civil war? SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2013 v7n2 p0830

I listened to the speech of the US Secretary of State, John Kerry. You can too, watch below.

Secretary Kerry told us that the Syrian government is targeting civilians, a lot of kids, in areas that the opposition holds. So this means the opposition is shooting at the government, but the government is causing more damage because they have more and worse weapons and Russia is helping them. I think we all need to picket Russia to get this civil war to stop. Bombing Syria will only piss off the allies of the Syrian government and the crazies who love war.

So why is the government killing its citizens, as it has for 2 years? Secretary Kerry talked about genocide, which is targeted, systematic killing of a group. I am not seeing genocide, I am seeing civil war. But I see so little.

Nasty business. Evil business. I want the killing to stop.

Don't bomb Syria. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2013 v7n2 p0828

Why we should not bomb Syria: 1. because blowing up people and buildings does not bring peace, it escalates violence 2. because the US is broke, we cannot even afford to keep the White House open for tours 3. because Syria is not part of the US. What we should do: send every diplomat to Syria, every peacemaker, find out what they need and work with everyone to stop the slaughter. Let me repeat: slaughter does not stop slaughter. There is no way to peace, peace is the way.
