Syria is a sovereign nation and has been waging a two-year civil war. This war does not threaten our nation or it's security and their culture is completely different than ours. We have no business getting involved and it appears the international world is of the same opinion. The United States has been involved in military action in that region for many years, losing many young lives, wounding many more and spending billions which has accomplished nothing.
We have our own problems of which we cannot seem to solve, let alone try to solve the problems of the sovereign nations and imposing our culture and type of government on other countries. It hasn't been successful in the last 30-plus years -- and I don't think it ever will be.
We never seem to have enough resources (money) to help our own, yet we spend billions and billions overseas. I would think our administrations would recognize that fact and wake up to taking care of business in the U.S. Humanitarian aid only; no military engagement whatsoever.
