Civil War on the Horizon? Tension in Syria is rising and the UN has declared a warning that the Syrian government will be trying new tactics. Both sides in the conflict have ignored a ceasefire that was supposed to go into effect on April 12. More than 13,000 people have died since March 2011 and the country is inching closer to a civil war as it becomes increasingly militarized. To make matters worse, a report from the UN indicates that children have become major victims in the conflict as Syrian troops torture and use them as human shields against rebel forces on the front line. The United States has expressed hesitation to the request for intervention placing the goal on stopping the violence, not increasing military activity.
