We must help Syria

Syrians are dying while we sit on our hands and do nothing

The reports coming out of Syria distress me very much.

I am totally appalled that despite the pleas coming from the shelled victims and the final messages from a Syrian blogger and two journalists killed, and still the world will not intervene in any way. Can we not do it alone as symbol of outrage and act to prevent loss of innocent life, life without access to medical care or food or relief from the terror of flying concrete & shrapnel and limbs?

Can we not employ some of our  drone and satellite capabilities to target any and all active artillery and tanks, from ships off the coastlines? To drop in needed aid?

Why are we waiting for an answer that is not coming from anyone or any other nation?

Why the increased bloodshed and suffering from Assad’s regime?
