We have had several conversations and blog posts relating to the civil war in Syria. Our 2012 discuss, Online Audio: A Discussion on Syria and the Suffering Grasses, covered the issues in 2012. The conflict has escalated since then, and the world’s super powers have weighed in on the conflict and the use of chemical weapons. Now, there appears to be some movement toward peace, but no one is sure that that means.
This piece from the Atlantic, Syrian War Worsens Ahead of Peace Conference, includes images of the escalating conflict. It is one thing to read about the conflict but another to see it.
It is a sad time in Syria, and we hope that 2014 brings progress.
