So, I'm going to do something that I don't usually like: I'm going to do a "link dump" - present you, my dear readers, with some of the most recent (and in my opinion relevant) articles related to the current crisis.
Please remember one thing above all else: If we in the west are silent and do not communicate our wishes to our politicians, they will be able to continue their course of non-intervention with the misguided belief that the "silent majority" supports them. Call your member of Parliament, your Senator, Congressman (woman) - whoever represents you in your government and plead for them to do something. In war, silence kills.
Each link will open in a new window. The second headline is included as an "oh my, uhm, oh ..." it is a story that is unrelated, but related in many ways.
