Escape From Syria
By Vivienne Walt
In a war zone, some buildings are obvious targets--command centers, weapons depots, enemy hideouts-- and some are not, like schools, hospitals, media centers. But in the battle for Syria, where rules of war do not apply and where civilians are facing a savage massacre, the house that served as a makeshift press center in the rebel district of Bab Amr is ground zero.
Destroying that target would go a long way toward allowing the regime of Bashar Assad to flatten the entire enclave without the whole world watching.
