Why did this #Syria-n mother try to kill her own child?

With all that is going on, ABC Nightly News didn't mention Syria once last night. That doesn't sound like MSM is trying to build support for NATO intervention to me.

Where is the humanity? I fear the people who just shine this on or excuse it. If they prevail, humanity is doomed.
