  • Moral obligation to do so

    Thousands of innocent civilians are being slaughtered. To stand by and allow this atrocity to occur when it is clear who we should be supporting is an absolute shame on the history of the U.N. If a majority of nations in the U.N. Are willing to intervene on the same side then by all means the U.N. Should stop the civil war in Syria.

  • This Is Why The UN Exists

    The United Nations was created to promote world peace and end conflict. In this case, you have a Security Council Member standing in the way. Ultimately, this could end up just like the Balkans or Rwanda where the UN could have saved lives but couldn't due to geopolitical and institutional flaws like the Security Council.

  • Yes, that is the purpose

    The United Nations is supposed to be a group of nations working together to make sure that no single government is corrupt and hurting its citizens. Whenever there is even a hint of problems within a country, the United Nations needs to investigate. When appropriate, they should intervene. That is the reason they are around.

  • United Nations Useless if it does not intervene in Syria

    There is a precedent for the UN to serve its role as a peace keeping force. Russia should be expelled from the UN Security Council if it keeps vetoing UN intervention. If the UN does not act with a show of allied forces to combat all war making efforts in Syria, quell all factions and the Assad government forces, it has failed in its mission and purpose, and has become a useless organization.

  • Trump will fix it!!!

    Donald trump will make the US fix the war. Everyone knoes his solanang Make Syria great again!! And so the US should wait for Mrs. Donald J Trump to fix it. Also i think u spelled US wrong in the tittle of the debate. VOTE TRUMP== NO MORE MUSLIMS SO THEY CAN"T FIGHT EACHTOHER IN SYRIA

  • The creation of UN was especially to prevent such wars and for now it fails with its primary purpose

    After WW2 UN is created not to allow global conflicts and at the moment we have such one in Syria & Iraq. Many countries are bombing "something" there supporting each side in the conflict. And this is a real world war in fixed region. Why UN is not doing anything . This is the primary idea behind its creation..

  • If the UN do not intervene in Syria, what are they for ?

    The United Nations was formed to get involved in a situation as now exists in Syria. The fact that they have not been used to bring an end to this appalling situation means that the UN is a shadow of what it was set up to be.
    Shame on the entire international community including US, UK, France, Germany plus all EEC countries as well as other western allies including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and all Middle Eastern countries for being totally ineffective in bringing this to a close.

  • We Should Not Intervene

    I do not think that the United States should intervene in Syria. We have a really bad habit of intervening and it really needs to stop. Let people fight their own battles. We have a lot of troubles on our homeland and we need to be focusing on those as much as possible.

  • It' a waste of the military.

    If the united nation got involved, we will be wasting our military, such as soldiers and weapons. Also, IF we get involved, it wont be a civil war anymore, it will become ww3, and personally, i don't want that to happen.

    In conclusion the united nations defiantly should NOT get invoved.

  • No country can intervene another country's sovereignty with the slogan of helping solving your human rights problems.

    One of the reason that the war cannot end is because big countries (Russia and US) supported government and anti-government army separately depending on their own interest. Syria civil war should be solved in the hand of its own civilians. Those big countries are not solving human rights problems there. They are trying to get their own interest. Without their support, the war might have ended. No matter what kind of government survives the war, it is the result of Syrian.

  • Nawh they shud nat

    America has no obligationjs to go save them. They are stealing our jerbs. U s a u s a u s a u s a u s a u s a u s a u s a u s a u s a u s a. Vot donald trump !

  • No UN in Syria

    The UN should not go in Syria , people will died in numbers , and the UN is kind of useless, take example in DRC there have been there for a while but still the conflict is not over , ... Every side in Syria should stop fighting and find peaceful way to finish the conflict, and to elect a new president

  • Too much Risk

    The Americans, and the other countries, will most likely send troops if the decide to fight. But this could cause multiple deaths that can be prevented. Those are men and women who have decided to fight, but they can also be used for greater purposes, happening both in America, and the rest of the world.

  • It's an internal conflict.

    What's happening in Syria is a civil war, and it's none of the U.N.'s business what is happening there. While conflict is distressing, especially the loss of civilian life, it would be impossible for the rest of the world to get involved without taking sides -- and ultimately, that means the side with the best concessions to an ally wins, not the citizens of Syria. We have to let what's happening play out, let them figure it out for themselves.

  • No, it might become worse, besides its a CIVIL war.

    Remember what happened in Iraq? There was a war that happened from 2003-2011. The United States intervened in the war, and guess what? Things got worse. Besides, it is a Civil war. The UN isn't allowed to intervene a civil war unless requested from the country itself. To add on to that, if there is a military intervention, innocent civilians' lives may be threatened.

  • Look at the precedents.

    I'm entirely pro stopping deaths but if you look at what's happened the other times the US have interfered with Arabic countries the result has been much more death and resentment than there would have been in an ordinary Civil war. Additionally the regimes that win have become entirely distrustful of the west as a result which doesn't help anybody. Unfortunately for the citizens of Syria, I think we're just going to have to let them fight this one out.
