No change – As­sad is still a killer

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

Syria took the un­usual step this week of an­nounc­ing they would sign up to the Paris Cli­mate Ac­cord, iso­lat­ing the US and Nicaragua as the only two coun­tries who still refuse to sign the cli­mate change char­ter.

It’s un­usual as, given the amount of nerve agents, high explosives, chem­i­cals, sarin and mus­tard gas that As­sad and his mur­der­ous regime have dropped on his own peo­ple, Syria in must be one the most toxic and pol­luted places to live on the planet.

Cer­tainly one of the most dan­ger­ous.

Maybe they think that this mother of all bat­tles to save the planet is an­other one that can be won by force, us­ing tor­ture, mass killing and caus­ing the dis­place­ment of mil­lions of in­no­cent civil­ians.
