Summary (16/08/2012)

After killing more than 200 Syrians yesterday prompted no reaction from the world is it a surprise that Assad’s forces killed another 200 today? Dozens of bodies were found dumped and burned in the Damascus suburb of Qatana, while in Aleppo dozens more were killed when a helicopter fired on people queuing for bread. The lack of condemnation of yesterday’s devastating bombing of Azaz has certainly given the regime no reason to halt it’s escalating use of airstrikes – we don’t think they are particularly worried by their suspension from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation today. Meanwhile, it is time to say farewell to the UN observers who were never provided with the necessary numbers, equipment, expertise or backing to be effective except as onlookers to the increasing bloodshed.
