Syria: the last straw

To the Arab League, European Union, United States, and Friends of Syria:

As global citizens, we call on you to take immediate action to stop the deadly terror in Syria. Enough is enough. We ask you to immediately demand a ceasefire to stop the bloodshed so that parties can come to the negotiating table to agree on a way forward. Until a ceasefire is reached, we call on you to work together and with the international community to enforce a no fly zone to stop the bombardment of Syria’s civilians and ensure that humanitarian aid reaches those most in need.

Syria has become the most brutal civil war in 60 years. 80,000 killed, thousands tortured, millions fleeing. And now the worst we feared: reports that suggest President Assad has begun using chemical weapons.

This is the last straw. The international community has dithered for too long -- it's time to demand an immediate ceasefire to stop the bloodshed, and until this demand is met, to place a no-fly zone over Syria, preventing Assad from raining his terror down on cities.

World leaders have made it clear to Assad that using chemical weapons was a 'red line'. He's calling their bluff, and by dithering they're sending him the worst kind of message. Let's send them ours.
