I’m sure Al-Qaeda snipers on the rebel side and Iranian and Hezbollah snipers on the other side all got the memo. Gee, I bet this works. What a nice thought though.

The U.N. must surely realize, that these are only stop-gap measures and will never address all of the needs of all of the Syrian civilian population or of the displaced refuges in the adjoining countries.
The only realistic and effective way to end the human suffering and the relentless fighting is an international intervention in order to give the Syrian people a chance replace the current government with one of their choice. While that process in itself may be fraught with pitfalls (as seen in Egypt and other Arab Spring countries), it is part of the democratization process that all formerly oppressed countries have to undergo in order to arrive at their own brand of democratic State that respects and promotes human rights and freedoms.

A precedent for further hostage-taking: the terrorists shouldn’t worry about food, medicines and, what is most important, about OTHER aid.

Hopefully, the western countries will not use the UN resolution to bring in arms to the rebels as part of their contribution in humanitarian aid. The western countries are very good at turning UN resolutions into opportunities to kill civilians. Yugoslavia and Libya are two examples. The hypocrites.
