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."
The New York Times' Nick Kristof rebutted Sarcon's statement:
"If President [Bashar al-]Assad thought the majority of people would support him, he would have an election," Kristof noted. "There is no doubt that there are significant communities within Syria that support the president. A great portion of the Christian community supports President Assad. There's also no doubt that the majority of the country is Sunni and is very unhappy with Assad. And he would lose an election."
Standing by his statement, Sarcom pushed back against Kristof's explanation:
"I think it's our right to decide our future and our regime," he emphasized. "It's no one's business to decide."
