Tweets, photos, and videos of the crackdown in Syria. WARNING: graphic content.

CNN reports that the Pentagon has begun a review of what military options the U.S. has in the event Obama decides to intervene in Syria. Syrian leaders received a visit from Russia’s foreign minister Tuesday as other nations continued to distance themselves from the country. Syria has been wracked by internal conflict for the past 11 months, with hundreds reportedly killed in the last few days alone, as a popular revolt has sought to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
