[Discussion on "military intervention" starts at 24:40]

Syria's civilian death toll is now estimated at over 6000 people, as tanks and machine guns continue to bombard residential neighborhoods. Some 25,000 civilians have managed to flee to destinations including Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon. Meanwhile, Syria's President Bashar al-Assad has announced a referendum in ten days to amend the constitution, limit his term in office, and set up elections. As France calls on the UN to set up humanitarian corridors and Russia responds by claim that such actions might "legitimize regime change," NPR's To the Point hosted Jadaliyya Co-Editor Bassam Haddad in addition to Erika Solomon, Rania Abouzeid, Robert Danin, and Shadi Hamid in a discussion on the question of intervention, how various international actors are respondng, and what options exist to address the situation on the ground in Syria.
