Syria has been in a civil war for the last five years and America hasn’t done much other than accepting around 150 refugees a day.
President Obama drew an imaginary red line in the sand against President Assad using chemical weapons. He still used them and we did nothing.
The crisis in Syria has sent millions of refugees all over Europe and now we are bringing in hundreds of refugees each week.
We know there is a problem and President Obama does not want to start a new war, but he may have to.
The State Department has always had Obama’s back through his tenure as president, but now some are breaking ranks to try and get Obama to consider military action in Syria.
It has been reported that 51 different State Department officials have signed a document called the “dissent channel cable”.
Reports are sketchy at best. Spokesman John Kirby confirmed that the cable does exist but won’t talk about it further.
It looks like the State Department sees an opening in Syria and they think it is the right time to move in militarily and stop Assad.
Military action is going to be a tough sell to Obama. He has avoided conflict in the past and is now in the final stretch of his administration. If he goes to war, it won’t help Hillary take his place.
Obama is in a tough spot. The right thing to do is to listen to the State Department and weigh all the options with Syria and find a solution, but it’s doubtful that will happen.
Do you think we should send the military into Syria to stop their civil war? Let us know in the comments below.
