The White House condemned Syrian forces storming student dormitories during an anti-government protest at Aleppo University and said that it may be time for the world to acknowledge that a cease-fire is not holding in Syria and that it is time to try another approach to stop the violence. "If the regime's intransigence continues, the international community is going to have to admit defeat," White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
Carney said that an urgent political transition is needed in Syria and it is time to try another approach. "It is clear and we will not deny that the plan has not been succeeding thus far," Carney said.
