They say there is a cease-fire in Syria.
They also say that the Syrian government and the Russians claim it does not apply to groups they identify as “terrorists.”
So the bombing goes on.
There was a picture in yesterday’s Utica newspaper of children looking out a large hole in the wall of their home, a hole caused by bombing.
The Syrian government, the Russians, ISIS, the rebels, the “terrorists” – none of them seem to care about the people who are caught in the crossfire.
I can understand the motivation of “terrorists.” When you feel helpless, you might strike out at whatever target is handy. Then, when you take up arms to defend your home or your people, to someone you are a “terrorist.”
Lord, have mercy!
