Live Web Discussion, US and European Engagement in the Middle East

I believe the United States is responsible for protecting civilian lives, stopping Assad from killing his own people and creating the necessary conditions for a peaceful transition to Democracy in Syria.

Three key world figures  led our conversation on US and European engagement in the Middle East: Ambassador Ryan Crocker, a former US Ambassador to Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Lebanon, and Kuwait; Dr. Nemat Shafik, the deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF); and Ambassador Andreas Reinicke, the European Union Ambassador to the Middle East Peace Process
