Re: Omran Daqneesh

You can't see it in this image but you know they're there; the big question marks above this boy's head, the ones that are saying "I don't understand this, I was sleeping 5 minutes ago; what's happened? Where are Mum and Dad? What is going on?" I'm the first to admit that this brought tears to my eyes when I saw it on the news. But what can I do about it; Nothing, because no one seems to listen to common sense in Syria, it's quite saddening to be honest.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

For me Martin Rowson of The Guardian summed it up brilliantly.

None of us are innocents in this, none of us and the sooner we disengage and stop bombing the c**p out of these people the better.

Perhaps we should. The horrors of war and all that but a war we have no business in?
I wonder how the fighter pilots feel when they see such images.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

When I see a picture like that it makes me SO angry Angry

His entire life has been in a war zone.

If he was brought to the UK he would probably spend many months looking round corners and watching the sky.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

No normal person could look at these photographs and not be affected by them.

One day this war will end but how many more innocent people will have to suffer in this way before it does ?

Do those responsible not have children ? Do they not ask themselves how they would feel if it was their children in these photographs.

@rongtw

Agree he has to go.

We know where he is and we have the means of getting rid of him quite easily.

Is his life of more value than the life of a single child or innocent person.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

You've got that right.

If this 2015 report from CNN is to be believed over 60 nations are involved in the anti-ISIS coalition. Crazy, confused, and utterly pointless as take out Assad and what do we have left but another Libya, another Iraq, and another Afghanistan. 

http://edition.cnn.com/2014/10/06/world/meast/isis-coalition-nations/

One year on from this and innocent people are still being put through the grinder.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

The President’s life is worth just as much as any Man, Woman or Child on this planet. However, when as a result of this life it inflicts pain and suffering on thousands then the time has to come to decide if ending it would put a stop to the suffering. If this then turns out to be the case then it should be considered as an option. How different would the world be now if Hitler were assassinated prior to WWII.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

These days it should be much easier to target a single individual with all the technology we have at our disposal plus weapons that are more distructive than ever, ie: Bunk busting bombs.

Hard to know the eventual outcome of this war irrespective of what we do but few seem to understand that no matter what the outcome no one wins in a war.

Re: Omran Daqneesh

This war was started by Assad by  a crackdown Sparked on April 29th in the town of Daraa by a group of 13 year old boys who wrote on the side of their school "The Government must go!",
