    Dear Mr. Cooper:

    If I remember correctly, the US also claimed Iraq had WMD and based on that fact went to a war in Irak which cost trillions of dollars under the bush administration. No Wmd were ever found !!!
    Now based on hear say and amateurs videos and stories, we want Syria to rid of its president and perhaps even engage into a war like action against Syria? I strongly feel that the syrian people should handle their own crisi without any intervention or US media outcry about this.
    Do we want to again look like fools... I hope not. You yourself have not witnessed any true government crackdown against the Syrian people, Have you ? then just shut up and let this international matter in the hands of the Syrian people

    for us viewers trying to understand what is going on in Syria. we found it very hard to believe that CNN(Anderson) speaking with the UN Syrian ambassador the truth.shame on you Anderson and CNN for not reporting in fair and honest way. you guys have the power and the tools to Change things by reporting the truth.not by attacking and killing and using guns like Anderson did-in order to Change things -negotiations in peacefull way is the way to understand and resolve the problem .Anderson you are doing exactly what the Syrian government doing attacking .by not letting the Ambassador voice his opinion.
    first of all the US must stop aiding the oppisition with guns and other means . because Syria is the cradle of civilation and they work there problem ,500 policeman killed since the up-rise .policeman used to protect the citizen like my dad and mom and my brothers and sisters .Syria always been very safe country and i hope stay that way,not like IRAQ .
    I now refuse to watch you

    so when the ambassador says he has videos showing the opposite, does he mean protesters kidnapping security police children and torturing them to death? or perhaps protesters riding tanks and shelling the security force's homes?
