A lot has been said about the situation in Syria. The truth is that the issues that should concern us all are to do with the tremendous hardship faced by innocent civilians and children who are clearly suffering.
Another major problem is that the generation of politicians who are in place today are incapable of showing any real leadership and are thus unable to resolve what is becoming a humanitarian catastrophe. The situation in a region that is quite volatile could explode and get other countries involve. So we could have a repeat of the pre conditions that led to the first world war that then gave rise to the second. Reality is that the alternative to the dictator Asad could be an Al Quida led or influenced government. People like William Hague are unfortunately in charge of foreign policy which makes me feel uncomfortable and fearful!
