The proxy war taking place in Syria is similar to what happened in Afghanistan where countries such as The United States and Russia destroyed the entire hope of the country.
Of course, there are countries like the now peaceful Germany and France have taken a step forward in trying to ensure Russia puts force on to the Syrian government. It is not any different even with pressure as attacks continued throughout the day of the resolution being passed and even internal pressures from allied governments of the Syrian government.
A 30-day truce was announced, for immediate medical attention and aid to reach civilians desperately in need of it. This was a complete waste, as the truce was not followed.
Syrian warfare has taken another extreme by even witnessing patients suffering from chemical attacks. Iran and Russia being key allies to the Syrian government need to understand that it’s not a video game anymore, and that innocent lives are being affected.

What is funny is the denial from the Syrian government about targeting civilians. If they wanted to protect civilians the first and foremost announcement would have been to follow strict resolutions especially drafted from world peace bodies such as the United Nations.
The United States cannot be discounted! They have kept messing with normal UN procedures to add to the chaos and started the initial rounds of attacks. For example, the U.S has shown several efforts of overthrowing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which is a total violation of international law. This law is – UN Member states cannot support military action to overthrow other member’s governments.
ISIS may have been defeated in Syria but is the reason now why United States wants to keep its U.S troops indefinitely in Syria and even Iraq.
Syrian youngsters are not losing hope just yet. Muhammad Najem, a 15-year-old resident of the devastated rebel enclave in Damascus is using social media to spread the message of help needed in Syria. He has called on Bashar al-Assad to killing his childhood. Strong messages that are reaching out slowly to the world.
