It was great seeing Anderson out in the world and reporting on a troubled terrible situation almost on the front lines.

Fouad Ajami and Sen. McCain got on my nerves for endlessly suggesting that President Obama and the U.S. should do something, McCain said specifically we should be arming the rebels. Neither men are thinking about the long term or what repercussions could occur if the U.S. goes into a sovereign nation and gives arms to rebels. I really don't think the Syrian govt. will react calmly.

Maybe the CIA or the U.N. is already in contact with the rebels and have channels open to deliver weapons. If so, give Ajami and McCain 100 machine guns and 100 grenades and a map and tell them to do the job themselves.

I hate the Syrian govt. at war with its own citizens but feel it's a hopeless case right now. We can pressure Assad but I really don't want American lives at risk and this country dragged into another MidEastern war.

All that being said, I have a short attention-span. About halfway through 360 I was ready for a new topic.

Good reporting by AC and Ivan Watson--it was a very focused and in depth program and it's good to see 360 taking it on, it's too bad that they don't have complete access, but the hour was still worthwhile.

What was the purpose of Anderson's trip to Syria if he was there for only one day?
It made absolutely no sense.
Maybe if he had stayed the duration of the week his ratings might have been presentable.
