Over the past ten months, Syrian Security Forces have killed more than 5,000 protestors across the country. But this weekend, two key voices announced their calls to action: the Arab League will seek U.N. Security Council approval to peacefully end the rule of President Bashar al-Assad, and Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer introduced a bill that would block financial aid and create trade sanctions against Syrian leaders involved in the crackdown. Borzou Daragahi, Middle East correspondent for The Financial Times, and  Joshua Landis, co-director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma and author of the blog Syria Comment, join the program.
