  2. This is one of the saddest things ever. Imagine the horror that the parent had to go through by lying to his child that the bombs are music or something like that. My God…

  3. This broke my heart. Even though I live in a third world country, I feel so grateful right now to have had the life I’ve had and am currently living.

    This video puts so much into perspective. I wish this sweet family finds peace and normalcy again.

  5. This is so sad on so many levels.

  6. I like other stories by the same “journalist” (journaliste, journalista…dunno) – [https://metro.co.uk/author/emmabrazell/](https://metro.co.uk/author/emmabrazell/)

    Seems, she deeply understands Syrian trouble and knows exactly what gut-wrenching is going on!

  7. Isn’t this basically the plot of Life is Beautiful?

  8. I wish we could stop this stupid shit for a day. And then maybe seeing that we don’t have to kill or bomb or hurt anyone for that day might inspire us to go a second day, and then we’ve got the beginning of a streak going.

    And then maybe we could make it a whole year, and then a whole decade, and then a whole century.

    But I doubt it because humans are selfish, greedy assholes who want nothing but to control other people. This world would be 100% better off without us.

  9. >Gut-wrenching

    If a headline tells readers how to feel, then its not journalism, and its gets a downvote.

  10. Posting it in r/Mademesmile and then in r/Worldnews as “Gut-wrenching” – *just karma whore things*

  11. 139 upvotes in 2 hours and rank 15 on the frontpage.

    Nothing suspicious.

    This is how Reddit pushes propaganda to get you to be angry about something you can’t know is true so that a military action can be justified.

    What’s happening in reality is that the Syrian government – whatever you think of it is irrelevant – is recapturing its own territory occupied by Turkish-sponsored local and foreign fighters most of whom are classified as Sunni Islamic radicals fighting with the backing of Turkey who invaded Syria repeatedly in an overt act of war in several places.

    This article makes it seem like Syrian army is attacking another country rather than repelling foreign invasion. The never on the journalists to lie so blatantly.

    And the clip is very easy to fake it. British media has pushed so many fake news about Syria aimed at the Syrian government that at this point it is best to simply ignore anything they present as fact as propaganda aimed to get you to support yet another regime change war for oil and profit.
    Watch this and get angry and we will do business as usual and will tell you it was all for some little girl.

  12. They never mention that there are government humanitarian corridors for evacuation and that these people are being forced to stay by Al-Qaeda or choosing to do so themselves for sectarian reasons.

  13. Few more months and they will be liberated from literal terrorists.

  14. yeah, so how tragic eh? NONE of this would have happened if us/eu/israel would not have started and initiated what was, in syria back around 2011, overtly, or longer covertly. sad sad sad!!! 😉

  15. Guy wrenching. My 3 year old girl has the same laugh and it’s the best thing in the world.

  16. Everyone talks about a mother’s love… only dads can understand how deep is a dad’s love.

  17. This is a sad, fucked up world we live in.

  18. Parents just want what’s best for their kiddos. What a wonderful dad!

  19. I really expected a Joker movie reference here.

  20. What is the point of reading this?

  21. Reminds me of the academy nominated movie [Life is Beautiful](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDuFndNrJo0)

  22. Okay, what do you want people to do? Everyone on Reddit screams about the US backing out of the Middle East, then tells the US that they have responsibility in fixing this, but then says we shouldn’t be involved…rinse, repeat

  23. Yeah… Don’t forget all Russia deeds

  24. Too bad countries always have to bomb in other countries for some agenda

  25. I’m sorry but why are people who live in war zones still having kids? It is beyond cruel

  26. IRI, IRGC, Hezbollah, the Russian gov, The Syrian Gov, the American gov, the Saudi royal family, the The Qatari royal family, and Emirati royal family – all of you SHAME ON YOU!! And if there is a hell, you made it in West Asia. I curse your children and your children’s children for the havoc you have created. May your children pay the price of your fanaticism, orthodoxy and lies.

  27. It is incridable how much sympathy Assad gets on Reddit. No matter what the story is, I find people defending Assad and excusing his army. Either this is all propaganda or a lot of redditors are just genuinely uninformed.

    9 out of every 10 civilians killed in Syria were killed by Assad! How can anyone excuse this? Every videos you see from Syria you say is fake. Every photo is staged. Every witness is lying. Jesus christ it’s unbelievable!

    Also, since Assad is such a nice guy, why are the civilians FLEEING from his army into Turkey? You people go on and on about Turkey and the US and the ISIS and you’re totally ignorant to the fact that Assad is responsible for 90% of the victims!

    Here some source: http://sn4hr.org/blog/2018/09/24/civilian-death-toll/

  28. *European right wing parties are celebrating*

    (They need the news cycle to be about refugees coming to Europe so more people keep/start voting for them. All of them threw huge fits when coverage changed from refugees to climate protests as refugee numbers sharply dropped in the last year.)

  29. I’m not willing to watch that video, the description is disturbing enough. So damn sad.

  30. The russians have been knowjn to bomb civilian hospitals and helpcenters this is so inhumane, NYT did a open source reporting on this on youtube recommend watching it.
