"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

U.S.-backed rebel groups in Syria reportedly fighting each other- CBS News

The prospects for a truce in Syria are dimming by the day as Russian warplanes keep up their brutal bombing in support of the Assad dictatorship.
In a video that surfaced online, a little boy waved his hand from beneath the rubble of a shattered building, telling rescue workers he was still alive. Seconds later they freed him, bloodied but still breathing.
In another they dug frantically for a baby, but it was too late when they got to the child.
CBS News can't independently verify the videos, but they appear to show the Syrian regime's new offensive in Aleppo Province, which is backed by Russian airstrikes.
