The President vs. Syria

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And when there’s trouble, there’s the U.S. coming to save the day. We’re all familiar with the fact that when there’s a situation that can affect the international community, the U.S. is always the first to step up to the plate to help. While I’m not a fan of it, I do understand the need to intervene from time to time.

Unless you’ve been under a rock, there’s been a lot going on with Syria. Hopefully, the resolution that the Russians have proposed will end the two-year war over there. I do hope President Obama finds it in his heart to solve this problem without any military action. However, I understand that sometimes, a clear message needs to be sent.

We all need to pray for peace and pray that a decision is made soon.

    I think that military threats do more than lip service. Yes, military action should always be the last resort, but when it comes to certain people like Assad, verbal and empty threats are the least effective deterrents. There has to be a real and conceivable threat for using WMDs. Or else anyone can do whatever they want with no repercussions. International diplomacy is a very complicated endeavor and requires more than just what is seen on the surface or pontificated by political pundants on cable news.

      I agree John. I think it’s important for us to send a clear message that what is going is unacceptable. I’m also concerned that if we don’t do anything, others will think they can get away with that type of behavior. I just hope we can come to a decision and send a strong message without having to put troops on the ground or risking the lives of civilians by bombing.
