Western Aid Needed – Letter to the Dominion Post – 20 January 2016 New Zealand, News, Syria, Wellington Add comments Jan 202016 2 Responses to “Western Aid Needed – Letter to the Dominion Post – 20 January 2016” prose says: January 20, 2016 at 6:46 pm Once again, a fantastic letter from Mike. He points out not only the need for humanitarian aid, but also the hypocrisy of the anti-Assad nations. It would be nice if the “rebels” could be labeled properly as “terrorists”, but that wouldn’t get past the editor. Bravo, Mike!
