Sen. McCain says the Syrian government is "atrocious" for attacking civilians after U.N. monitors leave the area. Anderson Cooper asked him about the deadly cat and mouse game playing out between al-Assad's regime and the U.N. "If it wasn't so serious it would be a bad joke," said McCain.
If the rebels in Syria have sworn to not compromise till Assad is overthrown, they have set themselves as 100% or nothing. No compromise is possible with them. They have backed the regime in a corner. Plus there are the examples in the region of how the people treat deposed regime's. What do you expect the regime will do? If the people take up arms, they are taking the risks. Personally, I don't believe that the rebels aren't violating the ceasefire themselves and I wonder which side broke it first. The last thing the regime really wants is to have more international condemnation. I have learned that when you have news that contradicts basic logic, you are often not getting the full story.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
