I thought that was what the UN was for?
I have problems 'providing humanitarian aid' too.
Saw what that got us in Somalia,what it got us in other parts of the ME.
May sound cruel to some, but hey,' let's make sure people who hate,and want to kill, have all the food, and medicine they want'.

Sorry, I'm with Beezzer on this one. He said "to the refugees", which implies the people who fled the country, and are now outside it and on the
run with nowhere to go and no means of supporting themselves, so that there is no potential for recreating the Somalia debacle by having the aid meant
for the refugees seized by the bad guys.
I don't know when it became a "moral obligation" to interfere in the purely internal affairs of sovereign nations (like the Syrian Civil War.
Keeping it internal is sort of the whole idea of a "civil war"), but if it now is, I for one am suddenly a staunch supporter of IMMORALITY.
Folks whining "Muslim this and Muslim that", and the whole time can't figure out that for some odd reason we've started supporting the REAL enemy
who DOES want to kill us (viz. AQ and the Muslim Brotherhood) against the ones that DON'T want to kill us! It's the damndest, confusingest thing
I've ever witnessed in my life, and that covers a LOT!
