Why isn't the little girl tearing out the heart of the "enemy" and eating it?

See the difference? This video paints a very clear picture between the "rebels" and "assad" but in reality, both were quite brutal and barbaric.

Not about sides it is about Syria's children for gods sake.

So why do we need the evil girl from the umbrella corporation in Resident Evil? I understand what the video is trying to do, but I think it fails. Probably would have done better playing sound background music while showing actual footage along with statistics.

I strongly disagree. I think the video is powerful and does exactly what it set out to do. CHILDREN are being slaughtered while the world watches and does nothing.

What do you expect us to do? What are you doing about it? What about the children in other parts of the world? The girl in the video at least has a loving family, which can't be said for a lot of children around the world.

Why have you got to be critical and pessimistic? There is an on going and brutal war going on in Syria it needs attention right now - of course all children in this situation, it is sad where ever.

I was thinking the same thing, what's up with the negativity here?

I can't really say I agree that Syria needs attention though, what they need is to get their problems solved. The west, mainly US has already overextended way too much in helping other countries.

This is how I feel. I feel like the video is trying to get the West to step up their intervention in Syria, which at this point pretty much means sending in troops, which will just cause more chaos. Maybe I'm thinking too much into it.

West meddles in Syria by organizing and funding a rebel insurgency to pursue a nefarious political and economic agenda.
West gets all teary eyed over the kids that suffer from the conflict that ensues.
Oh the sanctimony.
