While John Kerry and President Obama grandstand on all the innocent men, women and children that died allegedly because of a chemical weapons attack outside Damascus and allegedly at the hands of Assad’s regime, they turn a blind eye toward the atrocities that occur in Syria on a day-to-day basis at the hands of those whom the Obama administration have pledged to support.
Obama and Kerry don’t care one bit about all the people that have been forcibly removed from their homes, forced to “convert or die,” displaced from their own country, kidnapped, raped, murdered. They care about one thing, and that is power.
They only pretend to care about dying children (only the ones that died August 21st outside Damascus), because they think it will get everyone on their side. I mean, if you don’t support bombing Syria, that must mean you want Assad to murder all the children. Putting your faith in Kerry and Obama means that you want Syrian children to live. So what’ll it be?
The latest atrocities that occurred thanks to our support for terrorists in Syria were brought to light by a photographer and journalist who witnessed and documented four beheadings in one day. Time was given access to the images he made. According to the source, these beheadings happened on August 31st:
Here’s an account of the photographer’s experience that day:
“The man was brought in to the square. His eyes were blindfolded. I began shooting pictures, one after the other. It was to be the fourth execution that day I would photograph. I was feeling awful; several times I had been on the verge of throwing up. But I kept it under control because as a journalist I knew I had to document this, as I had the three previous beheadings I had photographed that day, in three other locations outside Aleppo.
The crowd began cheering. Everyone was happy. I knew that if I tried to intervene I would be taken away, and that the executions would go ahead. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to change what was happening and I might put myself in danger.
I saw a scene of utter cruelty: a human being treated in a way that no human being should ever be treated. But it seems to me that in two and a half years, the war has degraded people’s humanity. On this day the people at the execution had no control over their feelings, their desires, their anger. It was impossible to stop them.
I don’t know how old the victim was but he was young. He was forced to his knees. The rebels around him read out his crimes from a sheet of paper. They stood around him. The young man was on his knees on the ground, his hands tied. He seemed frozen.
Two rebels whispered something into his ear and the young man replied in an innocent and sad manner, but I couldn’t understand what he said because I don’t speak Arabic.
At the moment of execution the rebels grasped his throat. The young man put up a struggle. Three or four rebels pinned him down. The man tried to protect his throat with his hands, which were still tied together. He tried to resist but they were stronger than he was and they cut his throat. They raised his head into the air. People waved their guns and cheered. Everyone was happy that the execution had gone ahead.
That scene in Syria, that moment, was like a scene from the Middle Ages, the kind of thing you read about in history books. The war in Syria has reached the point where a person can be mercilessly killed in front of hundreds of people—who enjoy the spectacle.
As a human being I would never have wished to see what I saw. But as a journalist I have a camera and a responsibility. I have a responsibility to share what I saw that day. That’s why I am making this statement and that’s why I took the photographs. I will close this chapter soon and try never to remember it.”
You see, Obama and Kerry don’t really care about these kinds of incidents, because they don’t serve their political purposes. If it had been members of Assad’s military beheading this kid, it would be all over the news, and all the war-hungry politicians and media pundits would be pretending to cry. Since it’s the “rebels,” well, then these victims are just collateral damage. They’re simply sacrifices that the Obama administration is willing to make in order to “liberate” the people there. It’s for the greater good.
