Is it time to act?

Yet more innocent Syrian people are in fear of their lives with the news that President al-Assad is mobilising troops around the towns that are known to be anti-regime strongholds. Last week, 55 people lost their lives, and the week before it was at least 108 people who died at the hands of the ‘authorities’. A whopping 14,100 people, from both sides, have lost their lives in just over a year, yet military intervention isn’t on the cards.
