1. Syria’s bloody civil war will hit its two-year mark this March, and still, embattled despot Bashar al-Assad clings to power. The all-consuming war has left more than 70,000 people dead — half of them civilians. Sadly, violent conflict has become the new normal in much of Syria,  and it’s often only while taking refuge behind Aleppo’s crumbled, pock-marked walls that Free Syria Army fighters can indulge in fleeting moments of their previous lives

    I just really like that photo of the soldier with the cat. I hope they get their freedom.
