Following the history-making debate in the British Parliament, where the representatives of the people of that country voted down a resolution which would have Britain conduct military action on Syria, the United States Congress is in the middle of the same debate.

The whole world is watching now, whether through CSPAN broadcasts of the debates on the floor of the United States Congress or through the thousands of televised news reports, radio interviews and blog sites, fueling millions of everyday discussions.

A meeting and debate in the United Nations on the crisis in Syria should be held as soon as possible, with worldwide broadcast of the proceedings. The magnitude of possible consequences for humanity is too high to conduct debate on television, or in countries whose populations are a fraction of the world’s. What the world is watching now is a situation which affects the entire human race-every Ambassador from every member country of the United Nations absolutely must be allowed to express their questions, concerns and proposals.
