American forces are awaiting the President's command to launch a strike against Syria. While there is still no word on what U.S. military action might look like, there are plenty of opinions on what should happen next. CNN military analyst and retired Army Major General James "Spider" Marks warns regime change is needed to end Syria's civil war. Christopher Harmer, a senior naval analyst at the Institute for the Study of War echoes that suggesting if the U.S. simply "levels the playing field" in Syria's civil war, the military action might actually extend the misery there. But former special forces officer and Daily Beast contributor Andrew Slater fears whatever America's strategic objective is, "we are not going to end the war." Anderson spoke with all three about what's next in Syria.
