U.N.: It Takes Time To Achieve Results In Syria

The head of United Nations peacekeeping, Herve Ladsous, was in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday and talked to Michele Kelemen about how many unnamed observers are in Syria and what they are able to do. Ladsous has said that the ongoing violence is appalling. Some in Washington have been calling for stronger measures, including humanitarian corridors or safe zones. But that seems unlikely since it would take a substantial military intervention, not just a few unarmed U.N. observers.
