What do Syrian activists think the United States should do about Syria?

“What’s undeniable is that Syrian people are in desperate need of humanitarian aid as well as political and economic assistance. Assad has proven he will not relent, with the Interior Ministry vowing that it will continue to implement the “security solution” until every expression of resistance is eliminated.

The hope for a democratic future in Syria currently hangs in the balance.”
