While it's true that harrowing reports of atrocities committed by Syria against its own people have sparked fresh international outrage, the outrage remains muted and has yet to translate into any significant action to put an end to Bashar al-Assad's human rights violations Outrage builds over bloodshed in Syria.
World politics dictates that there will be no "no fly" zones on this war criminal!
Most of the current bloodshed is at or near Syria's border with Turkey which, for Bashar al-Assad, is the wrong border.
If only he could manufacture an incident on the southern border with Israel, then he would find no shortage of useful tools to lend him support in condemning the Zionists over any concocted incident set up to divert attention from the crimes of the Butcher of Damascus.
Such is the world today.
