I got back from the Port Clinton Art Festival early this morning. The show was very high quality and a pleasure to be included. I could write about the show and all the great artwork and artists but what weighed heavy on my heart this evening as I walked in the woods was the saber rattling and impending attack on Syria by the war mongers.
Syria, a world away from Brown County, so why should I care? I care because I see the great evil unfolding. I care that my hard earned money made from creating and selling beautiful fine art is going to fund these attacks. Syria has done nothing to me or my neighbors or the USA.
The evidence points to the Syrian rebels launching the chemical attacks, NOT the Assad regime.
President Assad is being accused of using chemical weapons on his own people and this is what he says about that:
"This is nonsense," Assad was quoted as saying in an interview
published Monday. "First they level the accusations, and only then they
start collecting evidence."
Assad said that
attacking such an area with chemical weapons would not make sense for
the government as there was no clear frontline between regime and rebel
"How can the government use chemical
weapons, or any other weapons of mass destruction, in an area where its
troops are situated?" he said. "This is not logical. That's why these
accusations are politically motivated, and a recent string of victories
of the government forces is the reason for it."
