The air strike in Syria killed many innocent civilians, including dozens of children. This was a terrible tragedy, and the US should not be able to get away with this simply because they are a major world power and have lots of military power. They should have to face international court.
In my opinion it is the responsibility of any government to accept accountability for their military actions, regardless of if the action brings about either a desired or unintended outcome. For the U.S. to shirk its responsibility to communities directly impacted by its air strikes would be reckless and set a bad precedent not only for the U.S. but for other countries.
Yes, if the U.S. is involved in the Syria air strike, then it needs to be held accountable. All military action requires accountability. Otherwise countries would end up striking at will without having to take any responsibility. Military strikes are always a serious matter and should be a last resort. Accountability is necessary.
The U.S. needs to be held accountable for the air strike in Syria. The U.S. takes a lot of things by force while pretending to serve as an example to other countries. The U.S. sent its troops to Iraq, as if to teach them something, and essentially tried to force Iraq to be more like the U.S. The U.S. has concentrated its efforts on stopping terrorists at all costs. "The Guardian" reports that the U.S. had prior knowledge that there would be high civilian loss if the air strike was carried out. Nevertheless, the U.S. continued on with the air strike, killing many civilians.
