If some people actually listened or watched politics you would understand why we go to war in the first place. Obama had a hand full when he started his campaign. He has made some mistakes just like every president has but he should still take some credit for taking the plate to make the best decision possible for not just U.S. but humanity as a whole. About 198 countries agreed to sign some kind of document to not use chemical weapons some 11 odd years ago due to the great wars. The Syrian leader has killed 100,000 men, women, and children since August. Multiple countries have warned Syria to stop breaking international laws or they will send troops in. The two biggest Russia and the U.S.
All I hear is "we should stop butting our heads into other peoples business." and " we aren't the world police." and I can't decide if that's ignorance or arrogance but people need to understand what is actually happening. If no one does anything about it soon it will start becoming a trend among more powerful countries and then soon it will happen to us or multiple countries will get together and try to dominate the planet. If our government started killing its own people in very inhuman ways wouldn't you beg for someone to help? Do you let people in your workplace or school do cruel things to a certain group? Someone has to step up in some situations because humanity can only function as a whole.

Even if you don't look at the human rights issues it's pretty stupid to just say "don't attack no matter what" over this. I hope for a peaceful resolution, I do. But if we say "we won't tolerate this," then we need to not tolerate it. If we don't stand by our word we are broadcasting weakness to the international community in a time we need to be broadcasting strength. It's bad enough that our chief executive officer couldn't make the decision on his own and had to rely on begging congress and the american people. We do need to stay out of other countries business, but not at the cost of what could be our own safety.

I think this is a good point but it's hard to determine who should take responsibility. This is probably a moot point, but the perspective of the picture rings true to my thoughts. I think after our wars in the middle east, it's time for some self-preservation as a country and time for other people to worry about the world for a while.

We didn't stop israel from using chemical weapons, and we didn't stop Iraq from using them, the US does not give one single **** about chemical weapons.

Its hard to stop someone from doing something if its already happened. We didn't stop Hitler from gassing Jew's after the fact.

But our strikes are used as a punishment for Assad already having used said weapons, this is just a double standard Israel gets to follow one law while *********** follow another.

We are going after the regime not the civilians and also not using chemical weapons.

I'm aware, i'm saying that the Israel government has used chemical weapons, so if we're attacking Assad for using them we should be attacking Israel for using them, unless like I said, there is a complete double standard.

I'm pretty sure they've stopped using them. They wouldn't be our allies.

You don't let a murderer off just because they're not killing someone at the moment, israel committed a war crime, just the same as Syria.

A nice rebuttal there, if you're resorting to ad hominems this early you've already lost.
