For the past two days, we are hearing the terrific news of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Syrian rebels claim that, the Syria government led by Bashar al- Assad used the chemical weapons against them to suppress their movements against the authority. Around 1,300 people were reportedly killed. The government accuses the rebels.
The death toll is rising, the real sufferers are women and children. It is really pathetic to see the photos of the dead children,what they have done, what is the mistakes they have committed? Nothing! they are the innocent victims, they are the little angels who were deprived of their right to live.
The world and the UN have the awareness that Syria possesses chemical weapons and they all feared that they may use it or the rebels may use it. We don’t know, who have used it, we don’t want to know it. The only thing, we know is the innocent faces of the children and poor women. The developed countries and the UN proved their inability to react spontaneously, they are studying the possibilities of who have done this and what is the chemical used and they are scrutinizing the incident. Whatever be the intention, it proved man’s inefficiency, intolerance and greed for acquiring more; while claiming that we are a developed high-tech world with intelligent citizens.
On 1988, the late ruler of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, used chemical weapons against the Kurdish. We know the cruelty of it, but, we were not able to ban the use of deadly weapons. Most of the countries boast of having nuclear power; it is like a threat to the man kind. Anything can happen at any time. Who is safe, who is calm and who is stress free? We don’t have an answer. Each country desires to show off its power,while they claim at the same time of being the one world because of the high tech facilities.
Let us pray for the poor victims of Syria and it is the time to re-think about possessing nuclear weapons and chemical weapons. Each one has the right to live comfortably, let our kids have the freedom to enjoy the high-tech world as it is.
