For many months the Syrian government has been mercilessly slaughtering its own people in a futile bid to quiet them down.
But now it seems the jig is up. The world is finally speaking out against the atrocities.
Three Arab countries recalled their ambassadors to Syria, including Saudi Arabia, whose king also demanded “the stoppage of the killing machine and bloodshed, and the use of reason before it is too late.”
These gulf state withdrawals follow that of Italy, which was the first country in the European Union to recall their Syrian ambassador last week.
Perhaps even more telling is that Syria’s crooked establishment has provoked the ire of cyber-activist group Anonymous, who hacked the Syrian Ministry of Defense website in support of the people’s struggle for greater equality.
When Anonymous is pissed at you, you know you done goofed.
If anything positive comes out of the Syrian revolution (besides government reform) hopefully it will be a message to the rest of the world’s tyrants: killing us won’t shut us up anymore.
We know who has the power now – WE DO!
We’re holding the chips, and if those who are fortunate to be allowed to lead should ever dare to disappoint us, heads might literally roll.
