The day before yesterday a man shot to death the Russian Ambassador to Turkey. The shooter then yelled out, “Remember Aleppo!” Shortly there after he too would die in a hail of bullets. I wonder if this incident will be the spark that sends our planet into a Third World War?
When that long forgotten man gunned down Mr. And Mrs. Ferdinand on that 1914 day, no one thought that 10,000,000 men would subsequently die over it. I must admit, I’m lacking on the details of why the guy opened fire on that car but it must have been important enough for him to do it and later be executed for his actions.
Will the man who yelled out, “Remember Aleppo” be remembered as the spark that lit the match that lit the fuse that caused the 50,000,000 sticks of dynamite to go off? I doubt it. The 24/7 news cycle has already left his name in the dust. The dire situation in Aleppo Syria has become boring for our news outlets. I mean how many times can they show bombed out buildings, dead in the streets and children crying?
This sounds terrible but I’m writing it anyway, “Your terrorist is my freedom fighter.” I don’t condone that man’s actions but Russia has helped in the slaughter of thousands in Aleppo Syria and they must be held accountable. No one wants a war to happen over this and neither do I. The names and some of the countries have changed but it’s still the same old game… This too will pass
