Lovely Syria, But Then…More Deadly Western Sanctions – Eva Bartlett

Footage from June, Damascus. Mostly lovely. 

Yet, yesterday the unbearable,  cruel, criminal latest round of US sanctions against the people of Syria  took place.  This is crushing the people. 

Prices have skyrocketed. The Syrian pound has  gone nuts, 6 times its value of some months ago.  People can’t afford  basic goods.  

And as a man I interviewed noted, the sanctions prevent the import not  only of medicines but the materials needed to produce medicines.  They are sadistic and punitive sanctions, designed to hurt, even kill,  Syrians, to break their support for their leadership.  

That won’t succeed. But many, many, innocent Syrians will be hurt while  America tries to break their will.
