    It is wrong what is going on in Syria but why people fighting to their own government instead launch peaceful demonstration
    if someone fire to their own army they must get the same response back. CNN should focus on syria their are much going on other places in the world.

    I was moved by the pleas of this man, reminding us the people being oppressed are human beings. I believe in our country and am a student of its history. I believe in the words in our founding documents. One applies to this situation as it does to many stories of the poor and humgry in our own country.

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with cretian unalienable Rights, that amoun these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

    I see this to mean all people have the right to, not be killied, to have freedoms that fit into the realm of a civilized society, and the opportunity to be happy. America being a world power and whos document of Independance states these words has not only the right but the obuglation to insure these basic rights to ouc citizens and to the citizens of the world.

    Thank you Anderson for being the voice of the voiceless. Keep supporting the Syrian people. The obstacle now is the Russian stand in regard to these massacres taking place in Homs and Idlib and Hama and Douma and all over the Syrian territory. Please urge your views to call or e-mail the Russian Embassy to express their outrage.

    How can we stop this? How can we (the world) hold our heads up and claim to belong to one human race and do nothing for the Syrians? What does our God think of people who can turn their head away and do nothing? As an American I'm sick and tired of ignoring the problems of the world when we have so much to be thankfu for.

    My husband was born and raised in Homs, Syria. He grew up under the dictatorship of Assad's regime and knows of the sufferings of the Syrian people. He watches the news of Al Jazeera and it breaks my heart to see his tears as he listens and watches the death and destruction of the people of Homs. Your breaking news was so painful to watch, BUT please do not abandon further reporting of these atrocities by Assad's regime. I have only seen full and accurate coverage on Anderson 360. I pray my US government will come to aid these poor people.I hope the American people will feel the Syrian peoples pain and become their voice for freedom.!
