War against people, not in my name

People may see me as over reacting to the bombing of Syria, but I am devastated at the taking of any life, especially the men, women and children that like us have no choice in what their cruel rulers do. You cannot save people by killing them.
I feel so frustrated for I, in the same way as every child woman and man in Syria must feel that they as individuals cannot stop their government and forces.
Do these people deserve to die any more than you or me? No they do not. Are they are enemies? No they are not. Are these human beings so different to us that they do not feel fear, loss or pain? No they are not.
How would you feel watching a child, your child, or grandchild cower in terror in a corner until crushed by rubble or cut to pieces by shrapnel?
Sorry to be descriptive but its important to realise what we are doing.
Imagine crouching down and hearing the roar firth of a jet engine the screech of a missile, a crump of an explosion then feeling the lost of all your family and friends.
Those of us that have not lived through the horror of war cannot imagine it fully. Its not glory, and clinical, when a missile strikes it does not just kill the bad guys, the wounded do not just have a patch of fake blood. If they survive they are likely physically injured beyond what we can see but the fear, emotional terror and anguish remain for ever.
We would get upset if someone broke into our houses and stole a few quid, our bombers are wiping away everything these people still have, if they have anything left after years of conflict.
War is not a game, this is not a movie, its real, its vile, its cruel, its vicious and deadly.
We are not saving these folk, we are murdering them. Culling them not for the atrocity they have caused, but for the rights to a bloody oil pipeline.
We are not the on the side of morally right at all, we are the aggressors, and this is an illegal war.
This is why I am so frustrated, why in the middle of the night I reported the prime minister to the police for breaking our country’s law by breaking international law.
I do not know what else to do, I feel weak and powerless but need to do something.
Just because I was born ‘British’ does not give me any more right to exist than any other human upon this planet.
And I will never ever sit by and do nothing whilst people, young or old, are killed and maimed in the name of greed.
So please share my words, share your own despair, your own anger and let’s find a way to topple the evil regime that we have here before we steal the lives of others.

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
