There appears to be no end to the torrential rivers of blood flowing across Syria.The other side of that bloody coin is the dictatorship of the Assad regime, which is conducting a similar, albeit low-profile but no less heinous massacre, with the siege of certain areas since 2013, notably Eastern Ghouta, which on paper and with Russian collusion is considered among the four regions in Syria labeled as "de-escalation" zones.Buoyed by Iran and Russia, Assad has gained enough confidence and a false sense of power to feel that he can dictate rules while getting away with murder, convinced that the world is looking the other way.
