It's pretty desperate stuff isn't it? There's not really any peace to keep in Syria: What's the deal? - Is the international community stuck between a rock and a hard place? I mean they can't really get involved unless they're going for (and are planning to stick around until) a regime change, right? That'd mean more than air strikes, right?
Meanwhile Assad's lot are just fucking pelting and pelting civillians with rockets and automatic weaponry.
