The Trump administration needs to decide whom it considers more dangerous – extremists and terrorists from ISIS or Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. About it told Senator Rand Paul (a Republican from Kentucky).
“You have to ask yourself: who takes over next? Are they better than the current occupant? So are the radical Islamic rebels – the radical Islamic rebels in Syria – better than Assad? There are also two million Christians in Syria, being protected by Assad, and they fear the Islamic rebels taking over,” the senator noted. He added that there can be an endless supply of enemies in Syria.
Paul also emphasized that the complex situation in Syria cannot be equated to the Nazi concentration camps during World War II. The senator recalled that atrocities throughout the world occurred every day, but that does not mean that the US should succumb to emotion and use military force every time.
Recently, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a military airfield in Syria and after that Trump threatened new actions in the Middle East.
Meanwhile, according to the poll, Trump’s decision to launch airstrikes against Syria garnered 57 percent approval from Americans, but they don’t want to repeat such strikes any more.
The publication of the results of the poll is illustrated by the photograph of the anti-war rally under the slogans “Hands off Syria!”, “Stop the war!”, “The Syrian blood is on Washington’s hands,” “Money is for schools, jobs and medicine, and not for war in Syria!”
