Syria crackdown: foreign nations put pressure on Assad (part 2)

For the first time, the Arab League has condemned the brutal crackdown of the Assad regime in Syria; while Turkey says it has lost confidence, and even Iran is telling Syria to look for a non-violent way out of the conflict. But even as the pressure mounts, the crackdown continues - 6 more people were killed on Monday. So does it matter to Syria that it is losing support from several key players?

  • Shevan, Syrian Kurdish activist;
  • Fouad AL OBAID, Columnist, Kuwait times;
  • Jonathan PARIS, London-based Middle East Analyst, Senior Fellow, the Atlantic Council of the United States (from London);
  • Joshua LANDIS, Director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma; Writer for "syriacomment.com" (from Norman, Oklahoma).

Watch the first part here.
