Video: Arwa Damon reports from Homs

Syria's ambassador to the UN says there's no armed conflict in his country. Arwa Damon reports on AC360 a very different story.

    so you think Arwa Damon is just making this up, these videos and pictures all fabricated? Three different family members in Homs have lost their homes and cars, many neighbors have been killed, snipers (including Iranians who only speak Farsi) are picking off people if they try to escape their homes or go out for food. Rockets and tanks are being used on civilians and the city of Homs has been obliterated. I know this first hand. The people have had no choice but to try and arm themselves. The world must intervene as this murderous regime will not stop on their own. The type of people that can torture and murder children will never stop. God bless Anderson Cooper for being the first American journalist to continuously cover this story. How many tens of thousands of people must die at the hands of this regime before the outside world does the right thing?

    II know someone in Syria, Latakia to be exact, that person just told me there was a film shoot taking place in Latakia and that was the cause of the gunfire...I don't live there so I can confirm, just what I was told by a person whom resides in that city.

    First of all I would like to say that CNN it doing a great job covering what's happening in Syria and the journalists there are extremely professional and brave.

    I do have a question though; don't you think you are (CNN) manipulated by the people there? I am just surprised that the witness you were interviewing Danny.....was able to get out of Syria so easily and is now talking to the media asking for help in a perfect English. How do we know it this guy is not working for any type of Islamist branch and the quicker we would intervene in Syria the Better for them ; everywhere in those Arab countries it is now only Chaos and military factions who are running those countries.....How do trust people there?????????
