Lawyer Fights for Syrians to Stay

Friday, June 01, 2012

Are conditions in Syria reaching a point where a rescue is in order? Not the rescue of a nation – the military interventions contemplated to stop President Bashar al-Assad and the growing violence and lawlessness would only add to the violence, we're told by NATO and the U.S. officials. But what of rescuing individual Syrians who fear for their lives?
