No peace in sight as Syria conflict enters the tenth year

The report was created by the Qatar-based news agency Al Jazeera. Often criticized due to its ownership by the Government of Qatar, the State Department of America claimed that reported coverage is used for political interests. One can argue that Qatar, being a wealthy state in the Middle East, not far from Syria, might aim to use report coverage for regional interests. The Government of Qatar also supports rebel groups in Syria. 
The speaker speaks in a calm voice about the tenth year of war in Syria.  At the same time, photos of people suffering, being in pain, vulernable children were shown. Right afterward, politicians and the former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan is presented, speaking about the UN’s engagement in the area. The speaker describes how Russia and Turkey support the conflicting parties and highlights how this fuels the conflict. The world is lacking a meaningful response, which may trigger guilt, pressure, and show disappointment towards political leaders. Again, pictures of war and most children are shown and video material of world leaders, and naked censored people killed in between. The video gives a summary of the nine years of war in Syria. The conflict has its roots in the Arab Spring and increasing protests from opposition groups who started fighting the Assad led government.

Dear Tobias,

do you see how many questions remain without an answer, while most of them never can be answered? Statements, interests, and obvious actions may have hidden points of origin – too complicated to truly deliver answers. This is why I believe that questioning is a sharp weapon in our hands.
