And this only refers to those where the regime is held responsible ...
How many more have disappeared under action of conflicting opposition groups?
Poor Syria - when will this end?

War IS the HELL people speak about. The most innocent, the children, always suffer greatly in adult matters. The photo that sticks out always in my mind is the little girl running naked down the road in Vietnam after the fire from a napalm bombing burned her clothes off of her body. That the human being claims to be so civilized is a cruel joke we are the lowest on the rung of all "beings" because we are the only ones that act in such fashion. The rest of natures "beings" only kill to feed themselves, humans kill for every reason under the sun and in a horrific manner. What a loss to ourselves and all that dwell upon this Earth that we do not use these gifts we, as a species were given for the Highest and Best, but instead create the Hell on Earth that we see play out over and over.

May, that is a number that I can't argue with. So it's 10 percent. Of course they could be spread out into the camps. And I'm certain you are wrong Dandelion, animals frequently kill for the hell of it.

Noted, ty. And no, animals don't "frequently kill for the hell of it". That's rubbish. As for we humans, look at history. We kill both animals and our own species on a frequent basis. Sad but true and it's nothing to be proud of.

How sad and sickening that people/governments still have not learned the horrible lessons of war and doomed to keep repeating these horrible acts.

Where do you begin to start sorting out this mess? This will fester on for years without direct action, whatever that maybe.

So what? Remember it was the brain dead Western leaders who started this. The rebels were promised help. Even when those same leaders vowed to destroy Western secular society.
