Pledges of Aid to Syrians

Syrians killed in Aleppo
At a meeting in Kuwait on January 14, 2014, many of the world's governments pledged 2.4 billion U.S. dollars to aid victims of the Syrian Civil War. 

2,400 million dollars will be diverted to help the victims of Bashar Al-Assad from countries who could use this money to help the quality of life of their own citizens. 

Delegates from nearly 70 nations and 24 international organisations gathered for the one-day event chaired by United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon.

The United Nations reports that:
  • The Syrian Civil War has been going on for over three years
  • The death toll is 130,000 Syrians killed, including women and children
  • 9,300,000 Syrians living in Syria urgently need humanitarian aid. Some may be starving in certain parts of the country. 
  • more than 3,000,000 Syrians have fled the country, are living in refugee camps in other countries and need aid. By the end of 2014, there are expected to be 4,100,000 Syrian refugees living in other countries. 
Amnesty International stated at the conference that the world community must act to end the suffering of Syrian civilians and called on the Syrian government to lift blockades on the civilian population in opposition-held towns and areas.

The Kuwait meeting took place a week before peace talks on Syria are due to be
Bashar Al-Assad
held in Switzerland. It has been speculated that the chances of a negotiated peace are slim.

Chances of a negotiated peace are slim because Dictators hold on to power and money until they are deposed by a revolution or die naturally or are murdered. They will not give up until their last breath.

Think of Hitler of Germany, Stalin of Russia, Mussolini of Italy, Moamar Ghadaffi of Libya, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, the Kim family - Grandfather, Father and Son in North Korea; Ida Amin of Uganda; Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Hosni Mubarak of Egypt; Charles Taylor of Liberia; Francois and Jean-Claude Duvalier of Haiti; Saparmurat Niyazov of Turkmenistan; and a cast of hundreds of other dictators in this century.

One of the only dictators who ever voluntarily gave up power was Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran, who ran away only after he got cancer and after he had stashed hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign bank accounts in Europe.

These sons of bitches either end up rich or dead. They never end up poor and dead. 

Ditto for the Syrian Dictator Bashar Al-Assad, who has stolen 6 billion in U.S. Dollars and stashed this money in Russia and other countries as his "rainy day fund".

This is in the event that he and his family may have to flee Syria. If he flees to Russia he will never have to answer for his war crimes and his crimes against humanity. 

Saint Jude pray for
In the civilized world, in the 21st century, blowing up civilians sitting in their homes is considered to be a war crime.

The United Nations is worried about distressed Syrians whether in Syria or in refugee camps in other countries. Bashar Al-Assad is not worried about these Syrians. 

Bashar Al-Assad is worried about Bashar Al-Assad. 

God knows we don't need yet another war. However the United Nations should be thinking about what to do militarily to stop this man instead of coming up with money to aid his victims. 

God save us from the Dictators.   

God save us from Bashar Al-Assad. Amen.
