Syria's Looming Water Calamity

Reader comment on item: Syria's Looming Water Calamity

Submitted by Judith (United States), Jun 1, 2014 at 19:20

This is amazing, and yet a probability exists that perhaps sadly the lack of water may end these civil wars. With women and children coming to the local well as they did hundreds and even thousands of years ago I am thinking the sign of the Crescent has too many negative implications for the lives of the people who follow it. This is sad. Human suffering decreed by other humans who live by ideologies of hatred and disregard for human dignity. If my children could not get food or water I'd want to be out of there so fast!

Sounds like more refugees will be on the move. Perhaps this tragedy will make Turkey the biggest player in the outcome of civil unrest. I think you predicted some time ago that Turkey could be the potential strong horse within all the chaos. Seems nature has put faith in the hands of Erdogan once again! May he find his heart before its too late.

Yes, I have been warning for years that Iran is the short-term danger but Turkey the long-term one.
