    Since the enactment of the Truman Doctrine so many years ago, the US has taken the role of protector of the people who are fighting “subjugation” although the foreign policy has changed over the years, something hasn’t and that’s the role the US plays. Don’t make this a left vs. right issue because it’s not, polarized politics are ruining this country. This issue is a human issue, The US as the most powerful actor in the entire world needs to step in and hear the cries of “chemicals, chemicals” and answer them. Over the years Assad has made it abundantly clear that he’s nothing more than a monster who’s gone deaf to the demands of the world. There is not a good solution but it’s clear that the us needs to be involved, if that means sending a message to Moscow than so be it. World war 3 isn’t on the horizon what is on the horizon though is a slippery slope of the human condition, if people can sleep at night peacefully knowing were doing nothing about it, America has strayed from the light. I stand by our president and his call for strikes, but I beseech the powers that be for so much more to be done, on behalf of American values, and on behalf of the human race. Civilians are not soldiers, chlorine gas is not a bullet, this is not war this is an act of pure evil.
