Crisis in Syria

The shelling continues in the Syrian city of Homs as activists say that close to 200 people have been killed in the last two days. President Obama has said that the “world cannot be bystanders” as the slaughter continues, but the international community is at a loss over what to do. Anne Marie Slaughter, a Princeton professor and former director at the State Department, and the Nation's Jeremy Scahill, get into an intense debate over whether the United States should intervene militarily.
