Images of Syrian Boy Remind Us of the Forgotten Victims of Permanent War
In the above snapshot taken this week, 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh is shown after his home in Aleppo, Syria was targeted by airstrikes and rescue crews then pulled him from the rubble. His family is dead. The video and images of Omran have gone ‘viral’ on the internet in recent days, reminding us who exactly it is who pays the price in endless, inter-generational warfare.
Watch the video of his rescue here…
The short-term goal of the Orwellian permanent war was to steal oil and other natural resources from the Middle East, to prevent rogue nations from skirting the influence of the international bankers by trading for oil in currencies other than the petro-dollar, and to provide a profit center and testing ground for the military industrial complex. The long-term goals have to do with destabilization of the West in order to force a police state and dictatorial world government on formerly democratic nations by creating so much chaos and instability that once free people would happily accept tyranny.
All of these goals are being achieved, yet it’s hard to tell by watching the mainline news sources, as they’re role is to keep our attention and the conversation directed on more superficial matters like sports, elections, crime and natural disasters. The puppet masters in our world simply don’t care who they kill in their quest to bring the world under their control, and the media support them by remaining largely silent.
After George H.W. Bush’s ‘Persian Gulf War,‘ sanctions against Iraq are widely known to have caused the deaths of nearly 600,000 Iraqi children as the result of malnutrition and lack of access to medicines and medical care. Again, the elite don’t care, in fact, the opposite is true. They believe that their job is to kill enough people to bring about a submission by whomever they deem to be our enemies.
Just consider comments of former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright who is quoted here:
“If we have to use force, it is because we are America. We are the indispensable nation. We stand tall. We see further into the future.”
This is coming from a woman and mother of three, who in a 1996 episode of 60 Minutes entitled ‘Punishing Saddam,’ was asked if it was worth it for the U.S. to have directly contributed to the deaths of over half a million Iraqi children in order to enforce imperialistic policies in the Middle East. To punish one man.
She is also quoted as saying:
“There is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women.”
Meanwhile, in modern-day America, politicians and political candidates are allowed to omit the truth about the consequences of their policies and actions with no pressure at all from a controlled media, and the mindlessness of a willingly ignorant public. A president can win the Nobel Peace Prize while drone bombing families and selling arms to anyone and everyone, but the reality remains: war is a racket and most of the victims are totally innocent.
Furthermore, recently hacked emails from billionaire George Soros how active he is in supporting global chaos, again proving that the wealthy elite in our world are quite ready to use their money, influence and power to advance elitist political agendas at the expense of life, stability and morality. Meanwhile, the truest victims of imperialism and militarism remain the children and families who just happen to be in the kill zones when the bombs get dropped.
‘Collateral damage’ is what they call it when a child or a family ends up being blown to bits.
Images like those of 5-year-old Syrian boy Omran Daqneesh seem to be of great interest to people spending time on social media in the comfort of their homes and offices, yet when it comes to holding our supposed leaders accountable for atrocities like these, the silence is absolutely deafening. Had he been killed, we would not be sharing his story, but this image is just too powerful to ignore.
