President Obama addressed the nation last night on the ever-evolving Syrian crisis. His speech was a walk through the many complexities of the crisis where he argued for both sides of the coin. On the one hand, he made a strong case for targeted airstrikes against Syria to deter future use of chemical weapons. On the other hand, he argued that the United States should allow Russia’s recent diplomatic proposal to play out.
Anyone with thoughts on the Syrian crisis should watch his address so they are fully informed on the President’s position and the complexities of the situation. Reasoned debate requires knowledge of the facts.
In a scenario with no good options, should the United States launch airstrikes as a deterrent or give a peaceful solution a chance?
