"All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers." -- Francois Fenelon
Wait for about the 30 second mark for a reminder of what an advanced military can do to civilian population.
Although the war in Syria may seem like a relatively minor geopolitical conflict, it is not a "small war" for the millions who live there.
Too bad Syria doesn't have vast oil reserves, if they did someone would have stepped in by now to end the carnage. When the fighting ceases, the rebuilding will be long. Climate change and resource depletion are only going to make any recovery more difficult. Hopefully peace will be made soon.
