I liked this video because it showed the past presidents and how they dealt with foreign affairs and war compared to how Obama is dealing with it. I think that Obama should be cut some slack though because this is a big and difficult decision that he has to make. I definitely agree that we have to intervene, we cannot let genocide occur, we cannot watch this happen. But, although Obama wants to conduct an air strike on Syria, many of us don't agree and think it's a bad idea.
Syria and Obama: Wrong time, wrong place, wrong plan, wrong man, argues Peggy Noonan.
Holly Kapp's insight:
I completely agree with Noonann in that a military response would not be the right response and that we should do something different. But something must be done, otherwise we will be witnessing genocide much like what happened during the Holocaust.
Contradicting President Obama’s assertion, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said this morning on “This Week” that the president does not have the authority to order a military strike on Syria without Congressional approval.
I'm going to have to agree with Senator Cruz on this one. I believe that taking the military attack route would be a mistake because it might cause more wars to outbreak because there is already enough tension in the middle east. I also believe we would be as Cruz says "serving as Al Queda's air force" if we were to conduct air strikes on Syria. But what I don't agree with is avoiding involvement in Syria as a whole. I think we should be involved with Syria but not in the military sense in other ways that don't involve military attacks, because if we don't intervene and tell them what they did was wrong, bad things are just going to keep occuring.
I think that they all make great points but I still don't think that an attack is the greatest idea. Attacking might cause the middle eastern tensions to break out in an even bigger war. Most people are against an air strike anyways. But some sort of action must be taken because innocent people are dying.
Denis McDonough, in an interview on ABC's 'This Week' said he was 'outraged' at Ted Cruz's comments that our forces would be serving as 'Al Qaeda's air force.' The interview was immediately followed by one with Sen.
Holly Kapp's insight:
There is really no way to determine that this military attack will quote on quote "go as planned" or be a quote on quote "limited attack." I mean things could go wrong, that's why I think it would be better if we addressed Assad in a different way other than attack.
