I’m conflicted about our recent bombing of a Syrian airbase. Assad needed to be reminded the world is watching. The bombing was justified.
I wish it wouldn’t have been us who unilaterally launched the attack.
Through my adult life I’ve watched America insert itself in other nation’s business. We seldom make the situation better. Syria is a perfect place to make the wrong decision because there’s really no ‘good’ side in their civil war.
The raid should have been conducted by a coalition of Syria’s neighbors, folks with skin in the game. We sell them enough armaments. It’s not like they don’t have the hardware.
They are scared of the repercussions. No matter how good your intentions you will piss somebody off. We should be concerned too.
My opinion is out of step with the majority. In fact, I understand perfectly how those who support the president’s action feel.
It shouldn’t have been us.
