Is this guy a civilian?


By Jean-Wisly Simon

Syria is a tragedy! Don’t you think we need to do something about it?

“More than 100,000 people have died since the uprising against President Assad began in 2011”, said BBC. Without further due, we know there is an ongoing civil war in Syria.

Now, let ask a serious question: How would you call this guy in the picture?  Is he a civilian or a rebel?

In what category must he be placed if he dies in this war? It depends on who you ask!

Wouldn’t it make more sense if we were able to distinguish the deaths of opposition soldiers (rebels) to the general population?

By the way, I deplore the death of any human being in such condition. Notwithstanding such concerns, I still want to know how many real civilians have lost their lives in Syria as I would request the deaths of ‘opposition soldiers/rebels’.

Furthermore, the country is battling a civil war, how many regular soldiers have died there? The ways the media publishes the news from Syria appear to make it looks ‘the deaths are coming from one side only’. It seems to indicate only people who are against the regime died. Take it that way does not present the complete picture of this civil war. This war brings about suffering to all sides, even though special groups in Washington and London would like to make us believe otherwise.

The best way to put it: let’s try to stop this war. You might ask how? Yes, let’s stop it, the same way U.S  and Russia got their agreement on Syrian chemical weapons due to the seriousness of that matter and the negative impact of inaction on all sides (at least on paper). More important, this event occurred because of  the opposition of the American people to any intervention in Syria.

Look at the picture again: is this guy a civilian? If he passes in what category would you put him in the Syrian civil war?

Now, forget about the picture, think about people around him. Do they become targets? I am referring to children or/and women who live in that neighborhood.

We all need to push for peace if we care!
