Syrian refugees: 'We just want freedom'

Anderson Cooper reports from a refugee camp on the Syria-Turkey border where residents want their stories told. The Syrians refuse to return to their homes unless Bashar al-Assad is no longer in power.

    Thank you Mr. Anderson on Behalf of all humanty. 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?

    Dear Mr. Anderson Cooper:
    We all hold a job some time in our life, but very few would turn this job in to an opportunity to do a heroic act. Truly what you have done in covering the Arab spring has been a history making work. I cant thank you enough for your work and for risking your life to do this work spicily all the coverage you are doing on Syria and uncovering what the Syrian government is doing to its people for all to see.
    Thank you

    Anderson is the only major TV journalist who has consistently kept us aware of the horrors going on in Syria. Why is our government not doing something to help the Syrian people? The U.S. , Britain, and France rushed into Libya to rightly get rid of a dictator who killed far fewer people than what Assad has killed. Why is the world sitting on its hands? Are we afraid of Russia and Iran? The reason couldn't be that Libya has OIL and Syria doesn't, could it???

    We commend Anderson for keeping us informed on what is happening in Syria and for having the guts to go there in person. Keep up the good work Anderson.

    What is happening in Syrian is truly sad and yes I believe the world should step in and bring an end to this Crime. My question is; Where are the countries in the Middle East in all this and isn't it there time to step up and help bring an end to it all. But all I hear is where is the USA, if the USA would, USA should do that. If our President does anything he will be wrong with the far Right (wrong ) or it will be here we are trying to recover from the other Wars we have been put into by not the President, but by the very people screaming for more action is needed it comes from the Party that has are working to continue to protect their friends and that would be the 1% .Haven't we all seen enough death over protecting the 1% er's get richier and the rest of us are used as they feel we deserve. Does anyone else want to go back to a War and lose more of our troop's who are left to defend theirselves as well as the rest of us.
    Isn't there one person who is willing to say; NO MORE STOP IT NOW , MAKE the Very Countries who gain the most be told to stop this and we will support you efforts, but that doesn't mean any more US Citzen lose their life to protect Wall Street, and a congress that is more worried about stealing from all of us and those poor folks in Syria !!!!!!
