Death Camps.

saydnaya

Please, please read this Vox article on the Saydnaya death camp in Syria.

Saydnaya is not a prison, since it’s not a place where people go to live out jail sentences before being released. It is a death camp, one designed to destroy the human soul and body.

“Destroy the human soul and body.” Sit with that.

Make no mistake: this is a Nazi-style concentration camp. If you don’t believe me, look at this set of pictures of Saydnaya prisoners before and after their imprisonment:

(The photos are from Amnesty International’s extensive report on the death camp.)

Please read the Vox article. And then, every time you hear someone in the US government say that we need to partner with Assad, remember that we’d be partnering with a man who permits the Saydnaya death camp to exist within his country’s borders.
