From the Intelligence2 discussion "What to do about Syria?", which took place at the Tabernacle on 2nd April 2012.

In this "impromptu" Intelligence² debate, we addressed the big question of the moment: 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 brought together a panel of experts each presenting a different viewpoint. Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland was in the chair and speakers included Paul Conroy, the photographer who was injured in the blast that killed journalist Marie Colvin in Homs.
