"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. "

Khalil Gibran (How I Became a Madman)

Syria war: Army makes rapid gains in rebel-held east Aleppo- BBC News

Syrian government forces have been making rapid advances into eastern Aleppo, forcing thousands of civilians to flee.
The Syrian army captured Jabal Badro on Sunday, a day after seizing Hanano district, and is making in-roads in other neighbourhoods.
Its aim is to divide the rebel-held east of the city in two.
Some reports said several thousand civilians were trying to escape, to government and other rebel-held areas.
Some 275,000 people are believed to remain in eastern Aleppo, where food and medical supplies have all but run out.
