What to do about Syria? Intelligence 2

Last night, Intelligence² sponsored a debate held at the Tabernacle in West London on 'what to do about Syria?'
If you do nothing, say the interventionists, you’ll repeat the sins of Rwanda and Srebrenica. You’ll be guilty of standing aside and letting thousands of people whom you could have saved be massacred. If you wade in, say the anti-interventionists, you’ll simply intensify and widen an already inflammatory conflict in which there are no good guys or bad guys, just guys who hate each other and commit atrocities on both sides.

To examine the implications of the crisis for Syria and beyond we're bringing together a panel of experts each presenting a different viewpoint. Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland will be in the chair and speakers include Paul Conroy, the photographer who was injured in the blast that killed journalist Marie Colvin in Homs.
