About two weeks ago i wrote this comment as a reaction on a popular news agency website, i was greatly impressed by the response and the opinion of people i got. I decided to share it on my blog. its been a while!
I think many folks will benefit more from protest to middle-east heavyweights like Saudi Arabia to foster freedom of opposition groups and expression of diverse opinions within people in their own country rather than accusing Europe or America.
The realization of this group of people that they have certain rights to organize themselves and make their voices heard should follow the western philosophy of using protests only to make their voices heard without deaths and casualties, and work towards the freedom of the media to represent and project the voices of the people either minor groups or major. The violence seen in protests is contrary to the concept of protests, a protest is not same as a riot.
The US will not be an issue if someone takes responsible in creating a region where people can have different opinions and not fear force or military crackdown while expressing it for or against government or other institutions.
I can understand that America seeks his own interest and ways to increase the prosperity of his people (every serious institution does), what I do not understand is a government that threatens and slaughter its own people and a region where people who can offer real assistance don't say much words but "Peace be unto you" amidst massive human rights violation and poverty induced by huge selfishness of Leaders oppressing their own people.
Back to Syria, Turkey has been calling for military intervention in Syria for a while now and reports say the likes of Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been arming rebels for a longtime, So why do some still think burning US flags is the solution to their problems. The Solution to the crisis within the arab-world lies in the need for this people to learn more to tolerate themselves and tolerate the world.
