    Anyone mind telling me how this isnt raising an international outcry?
    I mean its been "a while"...
    Why isnt there a bds movement against this?
    How come no one is waving a syrian flag demanding justice and an end to atrocities?

    Nvm...

    :(

    We see it not only in Syria.
    IMO it originates in powerful people who have no respect for others - and who buy support from people who prefer siding with the powerful against the powerless when there is a gain from it, however little or illusory.

    How can we improve the situation? Interventions don't seem like a good idea any more because they too often make matters worse.

    The long-term (strategic) fix is a slow one. I think two lines must be run together: One on the top level where businesses are actively discouraged from supporting criminal politics - induced by political pressure from the grass roots and whatever one may summon of astroturf. The other one is the help to individuals - humanitarian and economic - in a way that does not disrupt the receivers and the donor society by inducing or aggravating corruption (both places).

    I'm sure it can be done. But only if there is a coherent strategy behind it: minds and money.
