Paul Larudee always hits the nail on the head!
“There is not a single member of our species who lives free of the tyranny of others. We can only choose our form of tyranny while waging an unending struggle for our our rights and freedoms. Syria is forced to deal with the fact that its ability to be free is constrained by the insistence of the US, Israel, NATO and other entities to meddle in its affairs. Until this changes, Syrians will have to choose between freedom and independence, because they will not be permitted both in equal measure.”
