More Deaths on top of More Deaths - the Peril of Syria

Observers of the global shame: that is the Syrian war, believe a final Syrian government assault upon Idlib, the last rebel-held province in the war-ravaged nation, is imminent. 

It the assault occurs, then there will be more deaths on top of the stark and sad number of the reported 511, ooo people already killed in the execution of the Syrian war, dating back to 2011. 

That the rest of humanity has been impotent in bringing an end to the seemingly perpetual carnage upon the Syrian people, is preposterous. Therefore, it must also be construed as being a gross failing by humanity, our governments, institutions and organizations to end a war, which has now lasted longer than either World War I or World War II.

Media reports confirmed some 24 air raids upon Idlib, a province of three million people on Tuesday, causing 10 deaths and 20 injuries. Though casualty figures vary within Syria, it is believed that the province has already lost 16,000 lives ever  since the conflict started back in 2011.

Hundreds of children and thousands of civilians have died in Syria, yet the war continues as other parts of the world go about their business without any hiccups or thoughts of the Syrian people.

But the war must end. Humanity owes Syria's children a chance of a childhood, a chance to normalcy and a chance at peace, happiness, opportunity and security. Let's end Syria's war. Let's also end Yemen's war for the sake of the children if nothing else.
