Attacking Syria is the wrong thing to do. After President Barack Obama made his speech about a military strike against Syria on Tuesday, there was a survey. According to a site called Reuter’s, “19% supported military action, 25% didn’t know what to support and 56% said that the U.S. should not have a military strike on Syria”(Reuter’s). If attacking Syria was the right thing to do then the president and congress would not have been struggling to come to a decision for so long. The fact is that if it is decided that a military strike should be sent into Syria, there will be consequences for that decision, and after explaining the consequences such as; military strikes harming innocent people, violence and chain reactions, surely readers will be steered away from wanting to send a military strike into Syria.
Plain and simple, military strikes harm lot of innocent civilians. “Obama’s decision to seek approval [from congress] has already delayed any attack allowing Bashar-Al-Assad to move troops and military equipment to civilian areas” (The Voice of America). Not only is the thought of putting innocent lives in danger heartbreaking, but Syria’s own government is putting them in danger and in some cases killing them. Syria has already done so much to destroy their nation so why would America want to add to the already horrific events that have taken place there? It is morally wrong to know that tons of innocent people will be killed if the U.S. military attacks Syria.
“Violence never ends violence-it extends it” (Toby Whithouse). Attacking Syria doesn’t solve the problem it makes it worse. On a small scale; when an individual creates violence with another individual, the other usually retaliates with violence as well, and each time it gets worse from each person. In a boxing match for instance; both competitors will do whatever they have to do to win and so each time they will react with more violence...
