Protection zone for Syrian population

Since no solution to the devastating Syrian conflict is currently in sight, protecting the civilian population must take top priority, the liberal-conservative daily Die Presse demands: "There is at present no viable solution to Kofi Annan's diplomatic initiative. ... For that reason the establishment of a protection zone, as proposed by Turkey, is the most probable and feasible solution. In Northern Iraq a protection zone for Kurds fleeing Saddam Hussein served its purpose well. And as long as the international community can't agree on mutual action against the Assad regime it must ensure that the suffering of the Syrian civilian population is at least kept to a minimum. A veto by China or Russia against such a proposal would be unforgivable."
