For the past few weeks I have been squirming every time I see or hear what is going on in Syria. My biggest disappointment has been the world leaders who sit Idly while innocent Syrians are being slaughtered by their own government. This indiscriminately killing of men, women, and children is being witnessed by the entire world, yet because Syria is hiding behind Russia, the rest of the world ignores the pleas of people who have no way to protect themselves.

I am not advocating that we need to get ourselves in another war, but a collective effort by the world community acting in concert would take care of the problem. No single nation should burden the cost of lives and money associated with removing Assad from continuing these barbaric acts. The top military Syrian Brass deserve the same fate as Assad as they too are responsible for what is taking place in Syria.
