As the U.S. contemplates air strikes on Syria, observers say the regime has scrambled to move many assets, including chemical weapons stockpiles, into hard-to-attack areas or close to large numbers of civilians.
Syrian millitary assets aren't very lacking for the small country it is. A strike on Syrian assets would no doubt prompt a response from their anti-aircraft assets. An effective strike would be a very large expenditure, no matter how limited, and the financial situation of America at the moment isn't the most solvent. If the strike is not effective, a violent response from the Syrian regime is not unlikely, and the Syrian people we're trying to benefit may end up being caught in the backlash of the Syrian regime.
Many points made in the video express merit in the idea of taking military action against the use of chemical weapons, especially the point of protecting the international principle and our principle against such torturous weapons, but I'm sure the chances are great that such a strike may even escalate the situation. Being drawn into another war, which many Americans would oppose, has a good chance with such a strike. Perhaps instead, America and supporting nations should impose economic and political pressures on the Syrian regime to halt the use of chemical weapons. If countries like Russia join the effort, the success of such a strategy seem even more likely than a military strike.
President Obama’s approach to Syria is likely to create an important precedent in the often murky legal question of when presidents or nations may lawfully use military force.
Karlo Remigio's insight:
Obama faces a novel decision, a decision that could set a precedent for future presidents, on whether to take military action to carry out a punishment on the Syrian regime that don't concern any American citizens, without the approval of the Security Council, and possibly without the approval of Congress. In such an crucial decision, and possibly historical decision, I feel it best that the president has at least the backing of Congress before any such strike, if a strike is even the best way to go about the situation. Without ignoring the need for something to be done about the use of chemical weapons, I'm sure a more effective, but less fiery reaction could be implemented against the Syrian regime.
