If the war in Syria is this century's Spanish civil war, then, according to respected British newspaper The Independent, the carnage now occurring in Eastern Ghouta is a modern-day Guernica.The situation in Syria today may be unlike the one in 1937, however, because the international community is now in a position to do something about the conflict.Leaders of the United States and the United Kingdom have appealed to Russia to act now to persuade the Syrian government to stop the bombing. Overall, the entirety of Syria has become a battleground for half a dozen countries, with forces hostile to the U.S. and its allies fortifying their positions and slaughtering civilians.
