A voice often drowned out by the bluster that preceded and followed the strikes, was that of Syrian civilian casualties. REUTERS/Omar Sanadiki

Unprecedented Western strikes against regime targets in Syria yielded a lot of political chest-thumping but no hope that the seven-year war would end soon or even claim fewer civilian victims.Russia has instead reaffirmed its alliance with Turkey and Iran and is still alleging that the April 7 Douma attack was a Western-engineered fabrication to justify strikes.On a wall in the province of Idlib, graffiti artist Aziz al-Asmar had these words for Trump: "Your strike is like a rooster's fart".Opposition supporters felt short-changed by the Western strikes, arguing that they may have assuaged Western consciences but had been a mere slap on the wrist for Assad.Exiled Syrian writer Yassin al-Hajj Saleh, whose wife went missing in Douma in 2013, saw that as particularly offensive.
