Hosted by

The rebellion against Syria's al-Assad regime and its bloody response have aroused hostilities between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, a religious conflict that goes back hundreds of years. We hear how it's spreading from Syria to the rest the Middle East and what the consequences might be for a volatile region and for the United States. Also, the US makes its stealth raid over Korea well known, and the President wants Americans to tell Congress they want gun control but polls show the momentum is slowing down.
