Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
"Syria, a Middle Eastern country, has a population that's difficult to determine due to instability. Approximately 5,000 flee Syria every day. In 2012, the country had a population estimated at 22,530,746, and this number dropped to an estimated population of 22,457,336 as of September 2013. In 2016, further declines have led to an estimated population of 18,215,868.

Just recently, Syria was considered a rapidly growing country in the area, growing over 2% in 2009, and growing from just 6 million in 1971 to its current population of 18 million."


4 million left or killed!



Yet those evil Israelis are far more important to discuss- after all, they are killing off all the Palestinians, right, Jimmy-Boy?
