Only 9% of American’s believe that the US should get involved militarily with Syria. I am not part of that 9%. Syria is not an ally of the United States and removing Assad will only pave the way for a Islamist leader from the rebels to take control. Thus further destabilizing the region. And that will cause serious trouble for the only true ally the United States has in the Middle East. Israel.
So we should not put our young men and women on the ground. We should not put our planes in the air. We should STAY OUT of Syria. Islam has been fighting among itself since Muhammad died in 632 AD. We will only tip the balance towards someone we cannot trust even more that we cannot trust Assad.
The European powers and Russia are correct in this situation. We must stay out of Syria and wait and see what happens. If the fighting threatens Israel then we should get involved. But not until that happens.
