Syrian uprising likely to turn into a civil war
With the Syrian military resorting to aerial attacks on rebel strongholds, Syria is likely to get into a bloody civil war in the days to come.

THE PRESENCE of UN observers have been ignored by both - the government troops and the revels. Reportedly, the fighting between the Syrian security forces and rebels has escalated in recent weeks and the U.N. brokered cease-fire is in shambles. 

The media reports from the Mid-East claim that the Syrian troops have launched an aerial offensive on rebel-held towns with helicopter gunships. In the ground battles the rebels are now using anti-tank missiles. 

According to a rough estimate, over ten thousand people have been killed in violence since the uprising began in March 2011 in Syria. With Russia still being an ally of the Syrian government, the only way left seems to be civil war and more bloodshed to decide the future of the country.

Meanwhile, the British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, has strongly suggested a military intervention for quick resolution of the impasse in Syria.
