    The region is a wreck. After hearing news like this, it's hard not to see both sides as guilty in the ever escalating violence.

    Enter Sly who will tell us these children were "military targets"...

    And the US keeps forgetting the rule that my parents had, "that you are judged by the friends you keep".
