If you have been following the news this week, there was no of escaping the horrible images and stories of a chemical weapons attack in Syria. Secretary of State, John Kerry, made clear yesterday that the U.S. government has evidence that President Assad used chemical weapons to brutally attack his own people this week. Kerry strongly condemned the attacks as a gross violation of human rights. He also hinted that President Obama is in the final stages of deciding what course of action to take in response to the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons.
This leaves many people wondering how the United States will react? Will the U.S. military strike government targets in Syria? Will a no-fly zone will be put into place, just as in Libya? Will the international community act in a unified response? These are just some of the questions being asked today, which are likely to be answered over the course of the next few days. In the meantime, we encourage you to post your thoughts on the Syrian crisis and how you think the international community should respond to the conflict.
