Amb. Rice: Action on Syria long overdue

U.S. Amb. to the U.N. Susan Rice tells CNN's John King about the Security Council's condemnation of President Assad. A full transcript from the program is posted on CNN.com.

JOHN KING, HOST, CNN'S "JOHN KING USA":  What's the right word for it, Madam Ambassador, when you listened to the gentleman who braved even calling CNN to report what is going on - snipers on the roof, tanks in the streets, three days of shelling before the tanks come in, people being assassinated for simply standing up and saying I would like to have the right to have free speech?  What is the word for what President Assad is doing to his people?

SUSAN RICE, U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS: It's horrific, it's appalling.  He's massacring his own people who are coming out to simply express themselves peacefully.  It's absolutely unacceptable appalling behavior and it deserves not only the condemnation but the full force of the international community the pressure that it stop.

And what Assad will find out sooner rather than later that the oppressive tactics don't work, they only inflame further frustration and aggravation and will only turn his people further and faster against him.
