Why is the international community reluctant to declare the situation in Syria a civil war?
I read an article today on http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidesyria/2012/08/201282683723964944.html? which got me thinking about the situation in Syria. What are the consequences of it being called a civil war and why does it matter given that people are dying shouldn`t something be done all the same?
