As Congress continues to analyze the data and debate the implications of going into Syria with American military activity, "Piers Morgan Live" invited a live studio audience, partly comprised of Syrian-Americans, to share their own perspectives.
"We want to show America and the world the other side of the story that is not being covered," Tom Sarcon, a Syrian-American told guest host Chris Cuomo. "We are happy with our regime. We've been very happy with it."

As the civil conflict within Syria intensifies, and the call for American intervention forcing an intense hearing by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Tuesday night Wolf Blitzer asked Richard Haass to share his expertise and analysis.
The President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Haass spoke about the global message being sent as a result of the U.S.'s position:
"In the case of Iran specifically, this is the other country to whom the Untied States has set a red line," Haass explained. "The president, as people know, said several times that our goal is not to contain an Iran with nuclear weapons, it's to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons."
Speaking live with Blitzer – Tuesday evening's guest host – Haass noted that Obama's current actions in Syria will prove telling in future dealings with Iran:
On the heels of David Frost's death, on Sunday Piers Morgan joined CNN's "Reliable Sources" program to reflect on the late journalist's life.
Prior to his appearance, Morgan took to twitter to share his thoughts on his fellow Brit:
RIP Sir David Frost > friend, hero, bon viveur, Arsenal fan and the greatest, ballsiest, most seductively charming TV interviewer ever.
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 1, 2013
"He was the fearless interviewer," Morgan said live on CNN Sunday. "I think for anyone in the world of journalism and television journalism, Sir David was the best."

Coming up tonight, “Piers Morgan Live” welcomes two time NFL Super Bowl Champ Jim McMahon and his lawyer, Larry Coben, to discuss the recent agreement between ex-players and the National Football League.
"I think it's finally put to rest some of these guys that are hurting so bad that they are finally going to get some help," McMahon says. "Once your brain starts messing with you, you don't know what to turn to, who to trust and we finally got some funds to take care of these guys."

The crisis in Syria raises many questions in regards to the Security Council's lack of action, especially as the issue of chemical weaponry comes to the forefront. Tonight "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Hans Blix, former U.N. chief weapons inspector and chairman of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission.
Blix strongly encourage the United Nations Security Council to come to an agreement:
"It ought to be possible to get the whole Security Council condemning the use of chemical weapons," he says. "They might not be able to point to Assad or point to the rebels but I think if Russians, Ukrainians, everybody would condemn the use of chemical weapons that would be already something. Only to have the U.S. and a few allies and a lot of quarreling in the security council will not be very impressive affair."
Blix would like to see condemnation now and accountability later: FULL POST
On the heels of Thursday's news that Britain's House of Commons would not allow the country to take military action in Syria, "Piers Morgan Live" invites Senator John McCain to offer his perspective.
"This wasn't the first time that Bashar [al] Assad crossed the red line," he tells Piers Morgan. "There are some allegations that it was as many as 30 times, at least ten. There is no doubt this is chemical weapons. Come on, does anybody really believe that those aren't chemical weapons, those bodied of those children stacked up?"
McCain feels strongly Assad needs to be removed from power: FULL POST
