I know that this has been dragging on for a long time and perhaps many are tired of this news, but as I was reading this article I realized for perhaps the first time that this is war. I mean, people seem to sugar-coat the conflict by saying “rebels” (not saying there is another way to say it), but “rebels” carries a very different connotation than civil war. Which is what this is. It’s war.
Blows my mind.
