War with Syria?

Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress’ vote. It’s legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don’t we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.

Chemical weapons kill in a horrible way. If we let countries attack their own people with this kind of weapons does that mean they can also confront their neighbors or do they do it to let the world know they are able to respond with chemical warfare?

Russia might be selling her weapons to Syria and if there is a new war in the Middle East where does that leave Russia? She is the one who does not agree for a military action. If we give her the opportunity to resolve the conflict, would that be fair enough? She should step up knowing that there are some worldwide laws not permitting what happened in Syria. She should find a diplomatic answer to the conflict, and bring the people responsible of the usage of chemical weapons to justice.

As usual, repercussions in Europe and America could occur. Wouldwe be ready to deal with attacks from individuals or groups?

Going to war is always a major decision. We, as a people, want peace. Nevertheless, can we ignore what is going on in the world? If Syria used her chemical weapons at home does it mean she could attack us with the same process? Are we, Americans, in danger for our future? The Syrian government dislikes us.

I understand that we export a lot of oil. Do we have enough of it to use it for our own cause? Oil can be subject to warfare if other countries from the Middle East do not agree with our decision to stop the killing of people in inhuman ways.

The world is watching us; it wants us to be intelligent and brave. America is a new vessel waiting for her sailors. I pray for our Congress to act in the most strategic and advantageous manner for America.
