    Thank you Andesrson, please do Not listen to others when they say" we should be involved"، do what you feel it is the right thing to do, thank you for conveying the Syrian voices to the rest of the world.
    Another story that is worth covering is a story of Jamal Fatwa, a young pharmacist whom was arrested on 8/2 /11 for crying a speaker in his car and brought back to his family dead under tourcher on 8/14/11

    Thank you Anderson for profiling the savagery excericised by the Assad regime. The little girl is one of many many horrendous examples of sadistic inhumaniy unleashed on the unarmed population. What is sad even more...seeing the world standing idle...lobbing th empty..hollow..disgusting "condemenations" of the Assad regime. It is as if they are egging on and cheering Assad to hurry up and get it done quickly!! very sad!

    I never thought I'd see the "champions" of freedom..whther countries or politicians be so cowardly inept! History will write the American government supported the human unarmed revolution with hollow speeches and wagging fingers!!! CNN on the other hand have done its part of revealing to the world the tragedy and the trap the Syrian people are in.

    Thank you again!

    As much as I agree with the above comments, showing the killing of a 2 year old baby was too much! This is especially so during a time slot when children may be wataching. It would have been sufficient to describe the killing w/o the pictures. We know about the brutal nature of the Syrian regime. Showing the picture of a murdered 2 year old did not add to my opinion of Syria's regime. Perhaps the world will now move but I doubt it.

    Dear Anderson,
    thank you so so much for showing the brutal images that are coming out of Syria. The sacrifices of this nobel and peacful uprising is being ignored by so many. Thank you for shedding some light on the truth in support of the Syrian people and thier struggle for freedom.

    Dear Mr. Cooper,

    I have watched your show for some time now and I am pleased to have the opportunity to watch. This evening’s broadcast was especially moving and concerning about brutality that is permutated on the Syria people. It is very seldom that a reporter reports such distressing news with care and emotion as you do. You have followed the atrocities that are happening in the World with an eye of mercy which is a wonderful human quality.
    Thank you,
    Nazeer A. Khan

    I don't understand why the world doesn't step in and do something about this. How is this different than libya?? Why is it ok for us to enter libya in order to protect people from a ruthless leader and not to enter Syria?
