“This horrible incident didn’t stop the Syrian people from fighting this regime …. We don’t ask the international community to intervene, we don’t beg them to intervene, we tell them: 

‘This is your job, this is your duty and you cannot turn your face away forever from what is happening in Syria’.” 

– Akil Hashem,a former brigadier general in the Syrian army
He is right we cannot continue to turn our faces away forever. The U.N. has put in ‘observers’ but they are observers and cannot stop the slaughter by watching! We need to find a way to make everyone take a deep breath and calm down. At the very least we need to evacuate the children. AlJAZEERA  reports that there is no plan B: 

Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations’ secretary-general, has confirmed that, for now, there is no backup plan for stopping the fighting in Syria. “At this time, we don’t have any plan B,” he said.

I would strongly suggest finding a Plan B very very soon!
