Syria: some thoughts and some art

I'm appalled at the willingness of humanity to display such anti-human characteristics. In a spiritual sense war is fratricide because in a spiritual sense we are brothers and sisters of one another in a worldwide family. Our fate, at present, is in the grip of principalities and powers that not only lack love but are the enemy of love. Jesus said, "Love your brother like your soul, guard him like the pupil of your eye." verse 25 Gospel of Thomas Nag Hammadi Library.

The ever expanding and ever increasingly unacceptable plague of war spreading over the middle east has a couple prominent explanations.  

One: it is a 'pipeline' war.  

Two: "The massive, direct and immediate power interests of the US war state -- not the determination to ensure that a pipeline would carry Qatar's natural gas to Europe -- drove the US policy of participation in the war against the Syrian regime."

Whichever of the two plans is at play is virtually meaningless. The atrocities directed against human beings are the same whether it be pipeline or power. How you define it is meaningless at that point.

My question is when will the majority of us forbid this kind of behavior by the so called elected democracies that are so much in the vogue these days? 

I am sickened at the Spirit of the Age which requires this kind of behavior.

People are being mistreated, driven from their homes, separated from their families 
and finally having their lives taken from them.  

So I speak.
