In the town of Daraya, those on the brink of starvation are forced to eat grass, only minutes away from the 5-star hotel where international staff are staying as part of the biggest UN aid operation in history. Hundreds civilians facing starvation !!!

Last Sunday, the UN conducted its first successful aid drop in Syria. But only to Deir Ezzor, an area besieged on the outside by Isis. The vast majority of people cut off from aid in Syria are cut off from aid by the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Tell those flying over Syria that they should drop aid urgently to those civilians facing starvation

This was meant to be over. Two months ago, when the most powerful countries in the world got together to back a ceasefire in Syria, they said that aid would be going to besieged areas “in a few days”. That hasn’t happened.

In Daraya, where the town’s women have been protesting peacefully for the world’s attention, the people have received nothing. For over 1,000 days. In Madaya, a young boy starved to death, while another bled out because the Assad regime would not allow him to be evacuated to a hospital.

These sieges are brutal but we have the tools to alleviate them. Airdropping aid is a no-brainer. You’ve paid for this aid. Wherever you live on the planet, it’s likely you’ve contributed to it with your taxes. You have a right to demand it reaches those most in need, without excuses.

"To: US, Russia, UK, France & other countries flying over Syria:

People are starving. If you can’t get international aid into besieged areas through trucks, drop it from the sky. No more excuses."

The United Nations is called broken by some.

So, why aren't these characters dropping the food aid, if they think the UN is broken. . . ?

Tony Blair the war criminal, converted to (Roman) Catholicism after passing Prime Minister duties over to Gordon Brown, then became Peace Envoy for the Middle East.

Talk about trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.

He has subsequently said that anyone supporting pacifist Jeremy Corbyn that they get a head transplant.

He has also subsequently suggested carpet bombing Syria.

This guys is about as far from Religion as one can possibly get.

Anyone in favor of bombing an area, ought to get the bomb and then physically take the f$$king thing to the area THEY wish to bomb, and experience what's going on themselves.

Actually, unfortunately, this is what is happening in Syria and we are in the 21st century !! Throwing day thousands of tons of bombs, but they can not throw a ton of food for those fleeing the criminal system !!
