Carnage In Syria

The carnage in Syria continues on as Russian and Syrian warplanes are bombing areas where there are hospitals and schools, killing scores of innocent civilians, including many children. The so-called agreement reached between the US and Russia to halt the bombing so that humanitarian aid via truck convoys can reach the most devastated areas is nothing but a worthless piece of paper. Russia must stop its airstrikes immediately. How can this much-needed aid get to those thousands of civilians if bombing runs continue? The US and the rest of the international community must demand that this barbaric carnage cease immediately. Russia continues to flex its military muscle, and the world stands by and does absolutely nothing to counter it. Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad are vicious, brutal people who have no regard for human life at all, as evidenced by their continued actions against the Syrian people. When will this all end?
