Damascus hit

The news report: Fighting is intensifying across the Syrian capital Damascus, where the military has deployed tanks and helicopters, activists say. Shooting was reported in one of the main central streets and a square housing the Central Bank. Rebel forces say they have launched an all-out assault on the capital, calling it Operation Damascus Volcano.

And makes you wander for how long this will last, how many lives will cost and how many decades it will take the people to forget and forgive. But I think one thing that is in questioning this moment, a question nobody dares ask is what the role of the United Nations is. How does UN protect the people and apart from far away advices what else the UN secretary does.
