Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
It is terrible to note that a medical journal, like BMJ, is systematically ignoring the causes of the war in Syria and actually supports 'human intervention' (basically meaning bombing people) in Syria by Western Governments.
Here is an alternative idea: stop participating in the terror that is imposed on Eastern Ghouta, by Western Governments who sponsor 'rebels' in Eastern Ghouta who are attacked by the Syrian Government. Identify the elephant in the room that started this war: oil and gas.
