The purpose of the United States military is to defend the United States and it's interests.
While it is a tragedy that the people in Syria were gassed, why is that a reason for the United States - when Great Britain and other countries have declined - to go and bomb??
WHAT U.S. interests are we protecting by doing this??
Why not work with our allies and build stronger coalitions in that region?
If Assad is unseated there is a VERY GOOD possibility that the chemical weapons that were used will fall into the hands of al qaeda...
I challenge anyone to give me a valid reason for Obama's decision....
