McCain on Removing Assad in Syria: ‘We Think it’s Going to Require Military Action’
by News Editor
CBS News – This was to be the day the fighting stopped in Syria. A little over a year ago, a freedom movement rose up to overthrow the 41-year dictatorship of the Assad family.
Since then, President Bashar al-Assad has been shelling his own cities, killing thousands. He was supposed to pull out his troops on Tuesday in an agreement he made with the former head of the U.N., Kofi Annan, but that didn’t happen.
