Actions on Syria

 People who live in Syria are having a very hard time these days. Almost 70% to 80% of the whole nation are trying to drag Al-Assad, the dictator, down. However, Al-Assad attacked those unarmed people who gathered peacefully. They are dying, injured and starved. Therefore, some nations are assisting that other nations should rescue the innocent people in Syria by attacking the government of Syria.  However, unfortunately, other nations  intervening in Syria situation now cannot be absolutely justified. Not enough information of the opposition is known yet; many people are still supporting Al-Assad.

 Enough information of the opposition is not provided yet. Other nations are not well informed about the oppositions of Syria related to those of Lybia. The oppositions of Lybia was clearly well united. They operated out of a large base of Benghazi. In contrast, rebels of Syria are known as not having any bastion. Even if other nations help the opposition, it is not worthful to help wrong opposition. For example, even if other countries help the opposition, not united opposition will be not able to solve the problem at Syria. In other case, the opposition can be the group of another dictators. Which means that the current problem at Syria will happen again. Because it is hard to identify whether it is valuable to help the opposition now, other countries cannot engage in the situation yet.

 Plenty of the Syrian population, 20% to 30%, are still supporting Al-Assad. If other countries engage in this war and attack Al-Assad, then they are also fighting against those innocent citizens. This means that the intervention infringes those people’s right. For instance, most of the supporters are Sunni Muslims who knows that they will be not safe if the rebels consist of Christians and Alawites win the war. Let’s say that the UN fought against Al-Assad and won the war and Sunni Muslims are damaged by that as they were worried about. This cannot be justified. Because the Syria situation can be explained by war inside the country and the supporters of Al-Assad have their right, other nations cannot engage in their situation.

 The situation of Syria is very serious. People are all dying and they are injured. Helping people dying out is apparently right thing. However, people should consider the background of the situation and be sure that helping will really help all the people in a right way before helping them. As the world is becoming smaller and smaller in the global age, events that happened inside a country is not the only problem of that country. Therefore nations should make rational resolution for these kind of situations.

Hello world!

[Beautiful in various features]

 

Oh, look at that fruit!

How beautiful it is!

But inside, it has a poison.

Hurting living creatures.

 

Oh, look at that rose!

How beautiful it is!

But on its stem, it has thorns.

Not letting others to be happy by its fragrance.

 

Oh look at that horse!

How beautiful it is!

But inside, it has no wisdom.

Using its power inefficiently.

 

Oh, the true beauty!

How beautiful it is!

Helping others,

opening one’s heart to the world,

with eyes full of wisdom.

How beautiful she is!
