Having mentioned the conflict in a Syria on here a few times, this is the current figure for fatalities since it began 10 years ago this month. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the figure includes almost 117,388 civilians, among them more than 22,000 children.

If foreign powers, including the U.S. under Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State, hadn’t moved in at the first signs of unrest, the Syrian people would have been spared a lot of suffering? Maybe the Assad regime should have been accepted as autocratic and repressive, but also legitimate? Biden has of course moved back in and indulged in more bombing.

“Black lives matter” but Syrian lives not so much?
