City in Syria Reduced to Rubble: Is it time for the United States to Intervene?

  • We should step in.

    America has proven time and time again that we are a very giving country. We've helped many other countries that were in need and I feel the city of Syria should be no different to the rules. We should definitely step in and assist the small city anyway that we can.

  • The United States should not intervene in the City of Syria.

    The United States should not intervene in the City of Syria because the United States has a history of intervention that has lead to problems for both the United States and the countries that it has intervened with. The main problem is the state of the country after the United States withdraws, and the what is left to rebuild. When the United States intervenes they set up there own systems and regulations that don't necessary accommodate the culture and its values. When United States pulls out there a delicate balance between reverting back to their own system while trying to hold on to the new systems. Therefore, the City in Syria needs to relay on there own government to rebuild and rebound.

  • UN maybe but USA no.

    Syria is a matter for the United Nations but not the United States. It is well know that Syria forms a triumvirate with Iraq and Iran. Opposition comes from the tripartite Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Turkey and Saudi Arabia share borders with Syria. It would seem that the intervention hierarchy should be Turkey and Syria, followed by the Arab League, followed by the United Nations. If they in succession decline to intervene then end of story.

  • We have to pick and choose.

    No, it is not time for the United States to intervene in Syria, because if we try to win everywhere we win nowhere. We are so overextended as it is. We cannot possibly be the police of the world. The situation in Syria is heartbreaking, but we cannot possibly be effective trying to be everything to everybody.

  • No, it is not time for the United States to intervene in Syria.

    No, it is not time for the United States to intervene in Syria. The United States can no longer be the watchdog of the world, intervening in every conflict. The United States must make progress solving the many problems in its homeland before it can consider intervening in the issues of other countries.
