The Question: Is This Really About Human Life or Money in regards To Syria ?
I wanted to read more, about the international concerns around the world in regards to Syria. The opinions, comments, and feelings about nuclear weapontry being used on the Syrian people. The Syrian refugees that suffered the attack and being displaced to other neighboring regions.
The media websites, that I searched, gave very interesting topics and prompted me to the fact, to ask the question. Is this fight really about a monetary issue more than human life ? It would be unforunate, to believe, that money and the greed for oil is the reasoning behind such attacks. I examined, statements from various professional writings on the behalf of Saudia Arabia, Lebanon, England,France and China.
“Away from humanitarian concerns over the Syrian victims of chemical attacks, the Saudi antagonism to Assad’s regime started in 2006, when it appeared that together with Iraq, Syria was beginning to drift even more toward the Iranian sphere of influence and away from the Saudi-led Arab position, causing discomfort in Riyadh. Saudi Arabia aims to return Syria to its fold after years of estrangement and even hostility. The Syrian people deserve to live rather than be used and abused in a regional conflict with international backing.
“If the objective is to respect the will of the Syrian people, as Faisal has said, then those people must be allowed to live first, rather than subject them to precision bombing that may not be so precise. A cease-fire under the auspices of the United Nations may be the first step toward halting the massacres rather than seeking an international umbrella for more killing.”-Dr. Madawi Al-Rasheed is a visiting professor at the Middle East Centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She has written extensively about the Arabian Peninsula, Arab migration, globalization, religious transnationalism and gender.

Is the one of the third countries in the region, that population has grown and that the population of Syrian refugees is approximately 100,000. It is expected to double in times to come.
"Turkey and Jordan already have refugee populations in excess of this figure, and region-wide the number has climbed to more than 358,000. Governments in states bordering Syria estimate there are tens of thousands more Syrians who have not yet registered," told journalists in Geneva last month.- UNHCR's chief spokesperson, Melissa Fleming
“The UN recently issued an appeal for nearly $488 million to assist almost 300,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey. The latest UNHCR statistics estimate that the refugee total could reach 700,000 in a few months.” -http://www.irinnews.org/report/96834/lebanon-concern-for-syrian-refugees-as-winter-approaches.
In France, the United States has reiceved the necessary suppor after Secretary of State, John Kerry's appeal, form a long history of US and France collaborations.
"When he visited General de Gaulle in Paris more than 50 years ago, President Kennedy said, and I quote, 'The relationship between France and the United States is crucially important for the preservation of liberty in the whole world,'" Kerry said.
"Today, faced with the brutal chemical weapons attacks in Syria, that relationship evoked by President Kennedy is more crucial than ever," he added. "You have to look at the images of these children in rows with the shrouds over them, not an injury, not a drop of blood? And they are there and they are sleeping forever," Fabius said, visibly shaken.
"There's a dictator who did it and is ready to start again," he said gesticulating with his fists. "This concerns us, too. You can't say that globalization is everywhere except for terrorism and chemical weapons."
"France and the United States stand shoulder to shoulder. Some ask why? Just look at history. Each time that the cause is just, France and the United States stand together," Fabius said.

But the most conpelling document found was one by Dr. Nafeez Ahmed, the executive director of the Institute for Policy Research and Development and the author of “A User's Guide to the Crisis of Civilisation: And How to Save It.” in England.
“On 21 August, hundreds - perhaps over a thousand - people were killed in a chemical weapon attack in Ghouta, Damascus, prompting the US, UK, Israel and France to raise the spectre of military strikes against Bashir al Assad's forces.”
1)The latest episode is merely one more horrific event in a conflict that has increasingly taken on genocidal characteristics. The case for action at first glance is indisputable. The UN now confirms a death toll over 100,000 people, the vast majority of whom have been killed by Assad's troops. An estimated 4.5 million people have been displaced from their homes. International observers have overwhelmingly confirmed Assad's complicity in the preponderance of war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Syrian people. The illegitimacy of his regime, and the legitimacy of the uprising, is clear.
