The BBC run stories weekly at the moment, checking up on the situation as it unfolds. Yesterday it featured a story on the progress made by the UN
weapons inspectors and the deconstruction efforts intended to render chemical weapons unusable. Numbers were bandied about, and some reporter chap
blathered on a bit
They also covered the deaths of a few hundred people in a village, attributed to rebel action. I would say that the Syrian issue is still providing
the carrion birds plenty of fresh meat to pick over, and where ever the vultures circle, you will find a reporter with an angle and a mortgage to pay
off. Therefore, while Syria still has that going on, it will still be in the news.
It has to be said though, that there have been an awful lot of news stories that have, understandably interjected into the Syria narrative. The Syria
conflict has been going on for two years and more, so it's natural that every now and again something staggering will interrupt the coverage. Take
the West Gate shopping mall attack in Nairobi for example. That was a big assault, with many victims, and had all the drama that news reporters and
journalists in general thrive on. It's little wonder that news of the continuing mess in Syria was broken up by things like this over the years that
it has been unfolding.
