The images of human carnage following regime and Russian bombardments on Aleppo, Syria, have been bloody, stark and ghastly. Over the years, spanning the months and into recent days, humanitarian conditions have waned for Syrians.
The removal of bleeding wounded and dead Syrian children and adult victims from building collapses following air strikes by Russian and by regime forces, have been wrenching to view.
Yet, the images are real, thus reiterating and confirming the prolonged and the sustained attack upon humanity by the executors of war against the Syrian people. Friends of Bashar al Assad's regime continue to drop bombs upon targets in Syria aiming to prop up and to re-establish the failed government in Damascus.
Wednesday night's image of a dusty bloody-faced Syrian boy sitting in an orange-colored ambulance seat after being pulled from rubble follow an air strike in Aleppo, serves as yet another confirmation of the sustained attack upon innocent Syrians by Russian and by regime forces.
Sickeningly, the rest of the world appears impotent to stop the human carnage in Aleppo and elsewhere across Syria. However, the stalwarts of democracy and of liberty and of the rule of law, should be reminded of their humanitarian responsibility to protect the innocents of Syria and of the world. Humanity must never retreat.
