"No" to bombing Syria?

Reader comment on item: No to Bombing Syria

I disagree. Sarin is actually banned under international law . The planes used to drop the sarin gas should be destroyed so it can't happen again. And if the bombs hit a sarin gas depot, and did not actually drop the gas, that means al-Assad has sarin and that would be another reason to destroy his planes. I think that just because no other country would do it does not mean that we should not have done anything.

This being said, I do not agree that we should invade or start a war with Syria. But I like the fact that President Trump is showing the world that we will still be a beacon of good over evil.
