VIDEO: War in Syria edges closer every day to Assad

Reporting from the embattled Syrian city of Homs, ITV’s Bill Neely says it has become clear that the rebels can strike at the capital at will. They’ve burned cars belonging to judges and lawyers of the highest court; it appears the war is edging closer every day to the president himself.

Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remains defiant. He told Iranian television that external pressure hasn’t had an effect on him and that “No one but us can solve the problem.”
