Aleppo - Hell on Earth

A video taken in a hospital in Aleppo shows a toddler whose face is covered with dirt and blood who has stopped crying after losing his family.  He is being comforted by a woman who is mourning her own children, who have all died in the attack.  They are joined by a teenage boy holding the body of his month-old baby brother; he is refusing to let go of the body even though the baby has already died from suffocation.  

What can one say about such a situation?  Some people are actually rejoicing and declaring victory.  What victory?  This is not just Aleppo.  This is hell on earth.
