Stephen Sackur talks to Norwegian general Robert Mood, who lead the 2012 UN supervision mission in Syria. It was the UN Security Council's effort to encourage both the Assad regime and the Syrian rebel forces to stick to a loose ceasefire agreement brokered by the then special envoy Kofi Annan. After worsening violence, the mission was first suspended then abandoned. Has inertia and division within the international community condemned Syria to a slow and agonising collapse?
