A Really Good Question From a Really Good Soldier

This young man will be a part of the strike into Syria.  I have known him quite a while now, and he is a good man, willing to do what has to be done for the world, but he has a question, a very good question.  His question raises all kinds of other questions for me.

 
"Of all the Syrian Order of Battle briefs I've read, there is no mention of plans for dealing with Syrian civilian casualties. Of all the Fleet Positioning of boats in the Med & surrounding waters, there is no hospital ship.....where is the humanity we're known for? If we don't end war, war will end us. H.G. Wells."
Anyone know the answer?

I want to know too, what are the plans for the care of the innocents we are going in to protect?
