UN and Arab League must find a peaceful solution

The images we see coming out of Syria are deeply disturbing. If an armed response is activated, how many more innocent lives will be lost? The infrastructure will take tens of years to repair. If we actually go in, how many more of our Soldiers will be sacrificed? How many £millions will be wasted?

The armchair Warmongers, while shouting “Attack” are safely thousands of miles away. Assad himself has warned of “A Regional war” if the USA and France launch strikes on him. With Heavyweights China & Russia having a vested interest, will it stop there? There’s no winners in this dilemma.
The UN and the Arab League must exhaust every avenue possible to find a peaceful resolution.
