Why is the war in Syria being prolonged? Why do we continue to fund terrorist groups?
United States military personnel have entered Syria and stayed there against the wishes of their internationally recognized government. We seem to be dead set on overthrowing the Syrian government, no matter what it takes. The terrorism of Daesh is growing more intense every single day and millions of Syrians have become refugees. Just how much is this costing us?
Syria itself has been a relatively peaceful self-reliant country but it is rich in oil. Syria’s Baathist leadership has done lots of things to improve the living standards of the people ever since winning its independence. However, now since the war, it appears we have caused much more damage than our government wants us to know.
Syria’s political system appears to need a bit of reforming and modernization, yes. But, it definitely doesn’t need the exploited use of extreme terrorism. The current blazing war in Syria has nothing to do with their government or a way to reform it. Calling it a “battle for democracy” is actually quite disgusting when things boil down to what it truly is. This war is all about control.
Quite a few of the insurgents are not even Syrian! People from poor places all throughout the Middle East have been recruited in order to fight against the Syrian government. There are actually several terrorist training facilities in U.S.-aligned Gulf States. This is no accident, the United States, and its allies have been and are continuing to push insurgents into Syria.
These ‘terrorists’ are kidnapping Syrian people for ransom, bombing Syrian schools, beheading innocent citizens, and torturing people. They will stop at nothing to overthrow the Syrian government and make life hell for the Syrian citizens. The war in Syria is not worth the deaths it has caused, something needs to be done.
However, Donald Trump has said that he is against the war in Syria, and that he does not agree with how the United States has worked in the past. He disagreed with the murder of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, so hopefully things will be looking up soon.
The truth is politicians say a lot of things, but actions speak louder than words, so we will just have to wait and see.
