    I knew this was about to happen when I heard the ceasefire broke and the UN aid was just outside

    While kids and people starve to death and lack basic needs, this is what's happened to their last hope of survival. The picture is just heart breaking knowing what it could've done for so many lives

    lol UN "outraged": again, literally can someone explain to me the UN's role in a wartime settings? Because it seems you can bomb their hospitals and aid convoys to **** and they'll sit there voicing their "concerns", "outrage", "disbelief". All bark and no bite. There are so many members (193...some rather questionable) with different ideologies *cough* Russian airstrikes *cough* it surely cannot ever come to an agreement on most issues, and since members have to volunteer the troops....good luck with that.
