Unicef report: Syrian birth rate entirely predictable

Syria children


The New York Times has seen a Unicef report on Syria. News is “One-Third of Children in Syria Were Born During War, Unicef Report Finds.”

Pro-democracy protests erupted in March 2011. It’s now five years later and Syria is a bloody mess. But this is about a press release that isn’t all that surprising:

One-third of all Syrian children were born in the five years that conflict has convulsed their country, the United Nations said on Monday in a report that suggests a new lost generation.

Childhood is from 0 to 18.  Five years is between a third and a quarter of that. Depressing stuff, but it’s not news.
