Syria: Escalation and the Ballooning Refugee Crisis

The conflict in Syria between rebel forces and pro-government troops has killed at least 70,000 people, and forced more than one million Syrians to seek refuge abroad. AFP PHOTO/BULENT KILIC

    I think the problem with Syria getting help is that there is too much politics involved. It started out as a revolution, but now it has become an uncontrollable war. The torture and the killing is public, and everything is on television. Therefore, I think that, as human beings, other countries should feel the need to help the innocent people, not because they are taking sides, but because it just can’t be possible for a person to sit there, watch the news, have the power to change something, and not do it. As I said, there is too much politics complicating human feelings. They sit at meetings for hours, meanwhile, people continue to die.
