The president should be commended on his decision to meet with the U.S. Congress about a response to the use of chemical weapons on the civilians of Syria by the dictator of that country. The use of chemical weapons has been deemed unlawful by the United Nations and NATO and also is the use of nuclear weapons, after the two bombs were dropped on Japan to end that war.
President Obama is doing the right thing to meet with Congress and get the members' acceptance of what should be done to ensure that any chemical or nuclear weapons are not used on anyone. He is not attempting to get the U.S. into another war and stated such in the speech that he made on Saturday, Aug. 30. He has been doing his best to keep us out of conflicts where we don't belong.
This is a president that only wants the best for us and the rest of the world. The evidence has been gathered by the UN inspectors and will be given to the necessary committees where it will be put into the discussion that Obama and the Congress will decide what the next move should be.
The idea that chemical weapons can be used on any civilians, no matter who they are, is appalling and should be dealt with quickly to give the perpetrators of the crime the idea that this will not go unnoticed by the rest of the world. We should support the president at this time.
