On August 21, 2013 chemical weapons were used in Syria by Bashar Assad’s government against civilians in Damascus’s eastern suburbs. Images immediately began to flood out of Syria showing dead Syrian children. Video shows children suffering from what appears to be the effects of sarin gas.
As upsettings and as graphic as the video is, it’s something all Americans need to witness. If you can watch the above video and still not think that the United States shouldn’t take out the Assad regime, then you and I are simply wired differently.
I might feel differently about using military action in Syria if the United States didn’t have the largest, most expensive military the world has even seen. When we spend more money on our military than the next 17 countries combined, sitting on the sidelines while children are being gassed is not an option. To not take military action against the Assad regime would be immoral.
It’s time for Bashar Assad to join his dead relatives in Hell. We need to do whatever it will take to make that happen. Whether the rest of the world is with us is immaterial; we chose to construct a military that doesn’t need outside, foreign assistance. Truth be told, we don’t need any outside assistance to kill Assad and his regime.
We have B-2 bombers.
