Since the United Nations' supervision mission in Syria was adopted April 21, there has been little change in the amount of violence that has taken place in the war-ravished country.
Not two days had passed before the death toll rose by 80 more people, and today it is still climbing. I recently read an article announcing that the Syrian army had become more aggressive in its campaign to strike down the children of families that have opposing viewpoints. Some 108 women and children were murdered and disfigured by the Syrian army for simply being in the way.
Yet, that is not the most appalling statement made against the attacks. The most appalling would be the response given by the United Nations and United States. Both the United Nations and the United States condemned the attacks and promised stronger sanctions against the Syrian government. This same response has been given over the Syrian uprising since it started more than year ago. It might be time to crack down harder and stop the numerous murders occurring every day.
