a monitoring mission should be led by a credible personality, with an impeccable reputation internationally, with qualified instructors who know how to operate in this environment. Its size should be in the thousands to ensure you can cover the whole country.

The mission must also be independent with its own means of communication and the ability to travel anywhere and at any time. You must also inform an open and transparent fear, pointing the finger that the parties to commit atrocities.

Other options are dangerous or restricted. Military intervention is almost certain to worsen the situation and, as we have seen, the armed opposition against a far superior force, is a futile exercise against a regime willing to use all ...
