It is embedded in our logic, perhaps because of the fairy tails we hear when growing up, that all bad will loos in the end and only good will prevail. We think if the cause is right and we are fighting for the good we will win in the end, off-course after we face bet of difficulties (we don’t want to make it easy). In our case if people revolted and brutal regime that kills and torture whoever objects, then the gods will make sure we win in the end after the a short period of difficulties (kind a right of passage thing).
But history tells us different story, it shows no logic for who win and who loos and who prevail in the end. few examples that comes in mind are;
- the Armenians, after the got mistreated. they are still fighting for recognition from history for the misery they faced.
- Indigenous people living in Latin America and in north, after European invasion, they are still portrayed as uncivilized barbaric people.
- then you add Palestine Chechnya, Cambodia and so own
Those who are strong enough and smart enough, and lucky enough will win in the end. So it is not enough, to be on the right side and just cause, for the revolution in Syria to win it needs to be lead well and smart enough to win this war against a brutal regime who proved he has no ethical limitation to use whatever one can imagine to stay in power.
