"The Syrian government launched a major military operation Monday, sending thousands of troops into the town where the country's uprising began to carry out what witnesses described as a brutal, wider-scale crackdown. The United States threatened sanctions against the country, calling for a halt to Syria's 'deplorable' actions. At the United Nations, a draft statement condemning the violence was being circulated among security council members, a U.N. diplomat said." (04/25/11)
