There are babies currently being born in Syrian refugee camps, as the mothers worry about bombs, bullets, and lack of food and medicine.

Syrian rebel activist group posted these videos on Youtube and Google+ this week:

This is a video of a four-year-old boy starving to death in Damascus as the war continues on in the city:

The boy did not survive.

The group took video of the tragic image of the boy lying in the mortuary:

Many locals have said they are unable to buy food in the war zone due to extremely elevated prices.

… Chemical attacks against their own people, war creating such poverty people are dying of starvation and violence , and a country with strong ties to Russia… I wonder what the future holds for Syria…

Should the US intervene?

I think more emergency relief needs to be brought in.

I’m not sure if a US military strike is the right choice… but my goodness… what have they done?

    And it looks like so many here in the US are ok with what’s going on.. I definitely don’t know what the answer is to this. Like you, as a mother it breaks my heart.

    I think so many of us just don’t know what to do. Give some money to charity? Seems so small (not bashing on charities – I still donate when I can). I know that if that child was right in front of me I would help, but how to help ease the suffering of innocents caught in a war zone half a world away? I feel helpless and sad.
