It's really terrible.. my sympathies go out to the Syrian prole. The suffering there is just beyond what we can imagine. While this strike may have been caused directly or indirectly by allied forces, my believe is that Russia is responsible - together with the Assad regime - for much of the suffering in this conflict. 7 years. .this needs to end
