Read before you scroll to the video. Share on Facebook when you are finished with the video. People are constantly asking, “What is Aleppo?” This is the answer.
War will always exist as long as man cannot get past their own hunger for power and hatred of differing ideals. It is in the nature of man to always try and make forward progress in their own life. For some, this means victory and gain at all costs. Even before the lives of their own people.
Tyrant, dictator, politician, whatever title you give it, they are generally all corrupt and broken individuals. Their goals are self-serving, and they will pit man against man in many battles to the death until we have stopped existing as a species.
We will probably never succeed in ending war. We will probably never succeed in coming together as one species trying to solve our problems. At least, not until we can look past our own backyards and see that things like this are happening, and actively petition leaders who will act to do something about it. If those leaders won’t act to make a real change, then we need to force those leaders to stand down, because they are no true leaders at all.
War may not be in your backyard today, but it is in someones backyard every day. Present as a constant reminder of the pointless struggle for power our species has constantly endured under the hands of so-called World Leaders.
People are asking, What is Aleppo? Here is their welcome to a once glorious city, Aleppo, Syria. This is Aleppo. This is what war sounds like. This is what war looks like.
