The Obama administration is preparing the U.S. for military intervention into the Syrian conflict given the “undeniable” reports that chemical weapons have been used by the Syrian government on civilians last week.
The ultimate goal is to remove Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, who has clearly committed a terrible act using chemical weapons on innocent civilians, including hundreds of children. Foreign intervention is necessary and essential to ending the atrocities that are currently happening in Syria.
However, with any decision there is always debate and there is always doubt where questions are asked.
Should the U.S. involve themselves into another country’s problems?
Why are chemical weapons the red line that was crossed when a 100,000 Syrians have been killed in the last two years during the civil war?
Why does the opposition to a U.S. military strike not understand that it is the moral responsibility of nations of the world to condemn acts against humanity such as the use of chemical weapons?
However, another equally important question to ask is who will replace President Assad once he is ousted from power? He must and will be ousted from power in Syria for the terrible crimes against humanity he has committed through the use of chemical weapons. But again, who will replace him once he is ousted?
I would like to point out that the rebels who are currently fighting against the Syrian government are led by terrorists who are incredibly dangerous and would be just as brutal as President Assad currently is.
If the U.S. strikes Syria and ousts President Assad, what happens next? Will we find ourselves in this situation years down the road when radical terrorists are in power in Syria?
I personally do not disagree with the decision for the U.S. to intervene in the Syrian conflict as the responsibility to protect humanity against terrible atrocities. I only hope that the day after President Assad is ousted has been thought of and that the door is not left open for terrorists to gain power.
