Real News From The Blaze' Discusses Friday Massacare in Syria and Possible Intervention: If Not Now, When?

How much longer will the United States, the West, and the rest of the world watch without acting with force as part of coalition, or even as a sole actor, in attempting to end the horrific and extensively reported atrocities in Syria?

That question has been asked by many over the last few days as it was reported that over 100 people were massacred Friday in Houla, a small farming village close to Syria's third city of Homs. Activists say the Syrians were killed by pro-government thugs.

The U.N. said Tuesday that entire families were killed in their homes, including children, with most of the victims shot at close range.

The Economist reports that UN Security Council met on Sunday evening to condemn the killings while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for an end to president Bashar Assad's "rule by murder."

On Tuesday, the United States in coordination with Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain, expelled Syrian Diplomats from the country, over what it says is the Syrian government's responsibility for what happened in Houla. 

 

As the UN's diplomatic attempts at peace led by Kofi Annan look to have run their corse without showing any major results, how much more horror can the world witness without attempting an alternative policy?

S.E. Cupp updated "Real News" viewers to the massacare Friday in case they missed the coverage over the long weekend. The panel was joined by Christian Whiton of D.C. International Advisory to discuss the failure of UN policy in the region, and whether if at this point; is there anyway Assad walks away from this without being detained as a war criminal.

"If this isn't a war crime, I don't know what is," commented Whiton.

Cupp went on to question current American foreign policy regarding Syria, asserting that "if we are willing to put our money where our mouth, now is the time."
