Editor's note: CNN's Anderson Cooper reports on the aftermath of the Syrian government's recent move to lift a decades-old state of emergency.

    Thank you for your coverage of the Syrian protests and the brutal response of the Syrian government in putting down the peaceful demonstrators. I implore you to continue to cover this story as much as possible so that people around the world are able to see the brutality of the Syrian regime.

    Syria's actions in Hama, Syria in the 1980's, where they slaughtered more than thirty thousand (30,000) people, should serve as a constant reminder as to what the leaders of that country are capable of when the eyes of the world are turned away. We should do everything we can to make sure that nothing like that ever happens again.

    The people of Syria are simply calling for democratic reforms and basic human rights, we should do our part in helping them secure those demands.

    Thanks again,

    For the last 40 years the world leaders countries were supporting the Dectators regime in Syria, is it the time that they will give an open eye toward the human rights and protect civilians live in Syria yet???
    People in Syria know why the international community not supporting them and asking the Assad to leave, they are smart people,someone may think they don't know, but not true they know, and that only make them disappionted from the world leaders. It's make them feel they are alone, world leaders not calling for this regime to go out as they did to Mubark and Qadafi, they will keep blind eye on this regime no matter what happend. This regime killed the American soldiers in Iraq and could go away with it, the people in Syria know that, and if someone think they don't, he is only kidding himself. Our hope in some hounest Media like CNN and Anderson Cooper who can show the world the true face of this regime. Who knows maybe those solidiers will finelly rest in peace, when the world bring the killers to justice.
