With U.N. monitors in the country, video shows children killed in Houla, Syria. The president denies responsibility.
thank you so much anderson for raising awareness about the situation in syria...
Someone at CNN needs to find out why President Obama and the White House are letting this slaughter continue without any real action. It is unconscionable to think that they are allowing these murders to take place with no intervention just because there is an election coming up and they are concerned that oil prices will spike if we get involved. Shame on the administration for trading the lives of innocent children for their political ambitions. How can Pres. Obama look his daughters in the face and do nothing? Although CNN is obviously opposed to calling the President to task on anything, someone needs to step in and say enough is enough here. It is embarrassing to doing nothing to help the people of Syria.
Why don't you have more coverage showing Al-Assad and his wife living the good life while men, women and innocent children of their country are being murdered? I think that contrast helps to make people more aware of how crazy this is.
No, the world does not pretend that they don't know.. they know , they know very well what's taking place in Syria, & they know exactly what to do, it's just that they don't want to do anything about it.. & concerning the Russian foreigner Minister, I think he sleeps better at night knowing that there are children being slaughtered in Syria... let's face it he'd rather think disco & dancing than to think about saving face, least of all..
Where are NATO'S boots on the ground? It should have started a year ago. There should be immediate, severe sanctions upon Russia for arming the Assad regime, not to mention blaming the victims.
As I said before Anderson, you have the greatest pulpit in history! This is a wise way to use it. To shed light and keep the spotlight on the world's atrocities. You can be your own CNN hero.
You should also consider a story on the UN and how it has become an embarrassment to the civilized world. A drastic overhaul is needed of the UN. Perhaps a world constitution is the answer, enshrining the rights of all humanity. A panel of Haig-like judges can determine if the constitution has been violated and dispatch a UN sanctioned military to intervene and uphold the World constitution. The people of world deserves better than the current UN.
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.
