While I agree something should be done to whatever force used chemical weapons, it should be a U.N. venture, not strictly U.S.

I tried to find some data on all the deaths the Syrian war has caused. From what I can find, it is generally accepted that 100,000 people have been killed during the conflict. Of those, about 10% were women and children.

In the chemical attack alone that killed around 1450, there were 436 child deaths. The reason chemical weapons are denounced is exactly what the above statistic shows. Traditional arms can be more precise in hitting the intended targets IF they are used with that intention.

I hate the fact that if we retaliate against Asad, we are helping Al Queda and I am having a hard time getting past that but I think something needs to be done, just not by us. Let the Mid East U.N. nations deal with this shit.
