Powerful stuff... they sure are armed, no doubt about that. A picture of tanks is, in its essence, innofensive and harmful. But we know they use those in their daily lives. Just think about those pictures, and reflect about the current status of the world.
Powerful against civilians only. Israel has been occupying the Golan heights for about 45 years now and Syrian government have not made any effort be it political ones or military to take back what belongs to them but when it come to their own people they no problem whatsoever to slaughter unarmed civilians with all type of force.
