I wonder how long the Jordanians can shelter them? They already have an overwhelming number of "Palestinians" claiming refugee status.

" An estimated 2 million people who have been forced from their homes but remain in Syria probably suffer the worst deprivation. Some are making do by roughing it in fields, bombed-out buildings and abandoned schools. Many still face danger from bombardment and firefights as they try to cope with a lack of shelter, food, medical care and other necessities."

So, between 10 and 20% of the entire population of Syria are refugees somewhere. Who is going to care for them when the insurgency is decided? The Islamists? Assad should he prevail? He's not done anything for them up to now and my guess he would be unwilling to do much if he won either. The insurgents have only weapons and you can't eat, stay warm, stay healthy or be sheltered by those either. And their main objective will be to install Sharia, which probably means a good portion of those refugees, plus some are not going to be eager to get back to Syria. To say this entire region is a powder keg is to belabor the obvious! There is no long term plan for the people of the middle east other than the eternal struggle between warring sects of Islam. Humanism, living wages, food, medical care, shelter and jobs aren't even on the table for discussion and really, never have been. This thousands of years struggle will continue until one sect prevails, if ever. And in the meanwhile? Children suffer and die. How is that the welfare of their own children is not their highest priority? How can a war to the death be more important than the lives of people in the region? Until THOSE questions get asked and made priority, stories like this one will be all we hear from that region. That's the sad part. That their war over words is more important than anything else. And always has been. That is what has to change for the region to become stable and its people safe but given their history and their present actions, I don't hold much hope out for that kind of core change in our lifetimes, if ever. If ever it could be said of a people, it can be said of these, they know not what they do.

It's shocking that innocent people have to and will continue to suffer due to crimes they had no part in

How horrible. The suffering is going to go on for years.
I join with all the others on this list that hope for a better life for all.
