I couldn’t help thinking to myself; ‘Does the world not know about the War in Syria’
Maybe the world doesn’t care, or maybe people feel like there is nothing we can do, or maybe I’m downplaying the significance of the Brangelina divorce in my own mind to the point where I’ve lost touch with reality.
Assuming I haven’t, I can’t help but feel enormously frightened at the level of political chaos which has unfolded in Syria, where it appears the dominant super powers have decided to unleash their full military force in some sort of cat and mouse game with Assad and the Rebels.
Of course this is a game where the lives of innocent civilians are cast aside as mere causalities of an ongoing civil war, a game which has contributed to one of the most disturbing humanitarian crisis in living memory, a game which is politically engineered to cause conflict instead of peace.
Meanwhile the west is on red alert for cuddly looking kittens.
