Syria vs Sudan vs Libya

Reader comment on item: Further Thoughts on Not Intervening in Syria

Submitted by Stas (Ukraine), Jun 17, 2012 at 21:13

So many people are dying every day around the world, is it the job of the West to help every person who is in a bad situation? There are people dying in our own countries every day. There are deaths from poverty, drug abuse, murder, gangs and every imagined source. It is an age old philosophical quest to stop the suffering of people and have world peace. The images from Darfur are enough to make anyone upset (but in truth, their suffering does not get much exposure even though it has been continuing for years now). Everyone would like to have peace and safety in the world, but what happens in reality is all that matters. It must be the human version of survival of the fittest, and if it makes anyone feel uncomfortable to read this, then they are not being truthful and honest. The reality is that there is violence and corruption and unfairness in our world and most of the time, we can only watch.
