As civilians in the Syrian city of Aleppo are battered by airstrikes, ground offensives and shelling, what has happened to the world's responsibility to protect populations under threat?Ashdown, who was among Western politicians to call for military intervention in the war in Bosnia in the 1990s, said the world had become reluctant to get involved in messy, protracted conflicts.Syria's war erupted in 2011 after a popular uprising against the Assad family's more than four-decade rule that was inspired by the Arab Spring revolts across the Middle East.The war, pitting rebels mostly from Syria's Sunni majority against a minority rule rooted in Assad's Alawite community, has killed more than 300,000 people.Half the population has been displaced and much of urban Syria has become a wasteland.The Syria conflict highlights just how complex conflicts have become.
