ForTheCountry70

Pro

We should help. There will be no peace and no freedom in Syria while this tyrant Bashar al-Assad rules. He's used chemical weapons on his own capital. Hundreds of thousands of civilians are held in torture-prisons. He's bombed whole towns to rubble. Enough is enough. Action should be taken; military action: a no-fly zone, and targeted strikes on his bases and airfields.A279;

Con

Intervening in Syria would be a terrible idea. Why would we help the rebels who are just as bad as Assads Government? The people don't want a strike, Russia might come to Syria's aid.

"He's used chemical weapons"
Seems like the rebels have been using them to me.

Reasons for voting decision: Ye clearly the rebels are doing no good. They don't reserve any help. Con shows this. Pro just states his opinion and a couple basic facts.
