Never Backing Down

Updated on June 28, 2013

There are Alawite gangsters,
The regime-backed militia,
killing
and raping in the urban areas
yet the progress of the Free Syrian Army keeps trudging on,
never backing down.

      Thanks for the heads-up.

      James,

      I couldn't agree with you more, though I trust no one... especially when it comes to these matters! Something's gotta give and it's gotta give soon!

      My thoughts are with these poor people!

      The carrot... ha ha! You still maintain and wonderful attitude, my dear friend!

      You have a wonderful weekend yourself!

      lovedoctor926,

      Thanks for your concern and beautiful comment.

      If we want to overcome any hardship we must look fear right in the eye and say:Get the out of our way, we've got things to do.Sometimes things seems difficult in the beginning. That s only the intial impression. The important thing is not to retreat,we must have to stand up and master ourselves.

      Cutest Cat,

      Thanks for your concern and sharing.I really appreciate that.Mr Obama has been quite clear when he said last year that the use of chemical weapons by Syria's regime would be a red line and a game changer that USA will not tolerate.Now chemical weapons, sarin, were indeed used in Syria according to CIA and some other European intelligent agencies.I think no-fly zone tactic would deprive Assad of his most valuable operational asset, the air force.Almost 100 000 died in this conflict.It threatens to destabilize the entire region. The use of sarin suggests how much worse it can get. The U.S. must act now before larger international intervention, at a much greater cost later on, becomes a necessity, not an option.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

      I updated my Hub, James. Not that anyone seems to be listening. What a tragedy.

      This is heartbreaking. Thanks for the reminder. Don't ever back down even when the going gets rough. This is the key to victory and success too.

      Oh James, I understand even more now! What a tragedy! How... why? I just don't get it. How are humans allowed to behave this way? Why are they protected? Why is it accepted? Why is it okay? That was heart wrenching James, thank you for sharing... and I hope you keep speaking out and I will keep sharing!

      Hugs, brave one!

      Cutest Cat,

      Yes,Never back down.That is the secret of any success or victory.Your forefathers fought so hard to break loose with England and they succeeded.The freedom price is so high and Syrians are paying for it.There is a proverb says you can lie to me today but tomorrow you wont.Lies dont sustain long.If you want to know how people revolt in Syria.Check this Video,The kids were the cause.

      James,

      Isn't that what it's always about; never backing down no matter what is obstacle we face? This is obviously an extreme form of obstacles and I hope better days are on the horizon.
