KTH: Syrian refugees: Lives in limbo

Anderson Cooper's visa request to report from within Syria was refused, so he's at the border meeting with refugees. A full month after the so-called cease-fire brokered by the United Nations took effect in Syria, the killing continues. Anderson is Keeping Them Honest.

    Thanks Anderson, for showing us Syrian's children suffering under the Syrian regime and yet the world is not putting end for these atrocities The powerful countries just finding excuse and to stay on the side and let the Syrian ‘s dictator(Assad) slaughter over 11,000 human being and imprison over 100,000 innocent people.

    I have to say I was in Syria 10 years ago I was trying to cross over the broader back home Iraq.
    I tell what the Syrian people are the nice people have ever seen. they are down to earth very kind with big heart.
    But the Syrian regime is just like the Saddam. Go down Assad...... ..Go freedom.

    Thank You for the insight on the plight of the Syrian people. It is shameful to allow this to continue. The world must act now.

    Thank you for shining a desperately needed light of Syria with your "Syrian refugees: Lives in Limbo – Deadly Lies" A360 broadcast of May 14th with Anderson Cooper. We need to refocus on the American Dream and lose the enchantment of 'us against them' which is the cruelly selfish political entity the United States has become, more internally than externally. When we believe we can atone for killing unarmed Afghan children collecting firewood for their family from a safe with distance with attack helicopters by saying "we're sorry" and throwing a few coins at them, we are in very serious, perhaps even terminal, trouble. If it had been President Obama's children, would "sorry" have been good enough? One assumes it should be, in the land of equality and the brave and the free. Maybe a human icon from Syria would help – a cover person with a very human story, to help get the point across that national borders do not shield us from our ethical, moral, and human responsibilities. Thank you again, and all the best!

    Thank you for your effort in exposing the lies of the Syrian regime. I did leave that county 20 years ago after I was detained and tortured for no reason just because someone didn’t like me wrote a report against me. Knowing what I experience firsthand I can’t imagine what the Syrian people are facing under the hands of these butchers.

    thank you Anderson on Behalf of all Syrians.. we thank you for brining attention to our cause,, it seems the world is busy enough to ignore all these people dying.. whats going is a crime.. its a crime against humanity its no longer a political issue.. where are the international law to protect civilians ? are these laws just to be kept on papers and used for political reasons only?
