“If you’ve no sympathy for human pain, the name of a human you cannot retain.”
These were the words President Erdogan of Turkey used with Tehran in trying to save Idlib a sad fate. Anyone who hasn't been keeping up with us lately, or with the news, may have missed what is going on, I will leave the video here that we used a few days ago as a recap.
Airstrikes had resumed in Idlib, Syria! So why is Erodagan concerned? He's worried that a flood of refugees will enter Turkey if these strikes continue to destroy Idlib! He says with wise words:
“Idlib isn’t just important for Syria’s future; it is of importance for our national security and for the future of the region,” Erdogan said. “Any attack on Idlib would result in a catastrophe. Any fight against terrorists requires methods based on time and patience. We don’t want Idlib to turn into a bloodbath.
Ambassador Nikki Haley of the US, also said that these actions could be dire. So perhaps, a chance for diplomacy? The article quoted above also states:
While Putin called for the “total annihilation of terrorists in Syria,” he left open the possibility of a cease-fire. Rouhani as well spoke of “cleansing the Idlib region of terrorists,” while also noting the need of protecting civilians.
Although the retaking of the area is crucial to both Russia and Iran, a bloody outcome would not look good on anyone! But Putin hints at something that we've seen recently. He hints that there may be more staged chemical weapon attacks by Syrian terrorists, or maybe from Bashar As-Assad, but provided no evidence to back this claim. He also said that even though a cease-fire would be great he doesn't have any faith that it will hold! How will anyone stop Assad's attacks on Idlib? Many agree it needs to be done safely. Question is; how? Is this just a small event hiding a bigger picture is what must be asked. There will be a greater war coming and people need to be prepared. Unfortunately, most people have become desensitized to all of the warnings because of how frequent they are, but how long until they become more than just a warning? How will you react?

Have a very nice day!
