BRINGING PEACE, SECURITY TO SYRIA. #2015IN5WORDS
Syria: The conflict in Syria has continued to unfold in tragic ways over the course of 2015. From the humanitarian crisis endured by refugees fleeing violence, to the reprehensible human rights violations and violence carried out by the Asad regime, the Syrian people have borne a heavy load. The United States and many members of the international community have stepped up to aid the Syrian people during their time of need – the United States has led the world in humanitarian aid contributions since the crisis began in 2011. Led by Secretary Kerry, the United States also continues to push for a political transition in Syria, and under his stewardship, in December, the UN Security Council passed a U.S.-sponsored resolution that puts forward a roadmap that will facilitate a transition within Syria to a credible, inclusive, nonsectarian government that is responsive to the needs of the Syrian people.
They don’t even mention that the Syrian people are harmed and threatened by ISIS.
Against this threat, Russia is helping the Syrian people. While the State Department is allegedly giving humanitarian aid, how does that make up for the aid and arms we have provided ISIS and other terrorists?
In the video it is truly disgusting to see and hear John Kerry treating the results of United States foreign policy as a list of disasters that are Bashar al-Assad’s fault and which only we can rescue the Syrian people from.
He says that we will do all we can to ensure the conflict doesn’t spill outside Syria’s border. Seriously? That already happened. Just ask the Iraqis.
And why is it our job (and where do we get the authority) to dictate when or if elections take place?
