    U.N. official: We have ‘run out of words’ to describe conflict in Syria

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:49 pm

    How about these words: Religion of peace, or hope and change. There are no words to describe how much damage the U.N. inflicts and how much worse they make situations every time they get involved. How about these words U.N. – stay out of it and let the adults handle it. Words aren’t going to fix it, bombs and troops on the ground are.

    “Every time we use a new figure in relation to the Syrian crisis, we say that it is unprecedented. We have run out of words to fully explain the brutality violence and callous disregard for human life which is a hallmark of this crisis,” Valerie Amos, the U.N. chief for humanitarian affairs said.

    The Syrian government has used barrel bombs in densely populated areas and “arbitrarily detained” citizens and subjected them to serious beatings and torture. Armed opposition groups have taken locals hostage and killed civilians by using explosive mortar and car bombs. ISIS has committed “mass victimization” of civilians, including murder, enslavement, rape, displacement and torture, Amos said.

    All parties involved in the conflict “continue to violate the most basic of laws with devastating consequences,” she said.

    The under-secretary general described a particularly horrible situation for the country’s children.

    Reports of children being publicly executed, crucified, beheaded and stoned to death — particularly by ISIS — has increased in recent months. Other children, sometimes as young as 5 years old, are being trained at military camps, Amos said.

    “This conflict is not only shattering Syria’s present, it is also destroying its future,” she added.
