A civil war that has been raging for more than 5 years has gain new permissions to produce more blood indiscriminately. How can one write about an event that has produced more refugees than the holocaust in a neutral manner? There is no simple way to write a piece that explores both sides of the cause in a fair manner.
Civilians’ lives hang in the balance by leaders that they have never had a chance to experience. They have not elected these people, and are not represented by these powers that seat at their tables. The people remaining in Syria sit and wait for the heavens to rattle above them, or they wait for the earth beneath their feet to erupt. There is no hope for those civilians with the current proposals on the table. If the political forces try to squash the rebels, civilians will be at lost, and Bashar al-Assad will have a country that will experience rogue attacks against his administration.
