The Situation
-Syria is experiencing a civil war (who else has had civil wars? what is a civil war?)

-
Who?
President Assad VS. Multiple Rebel Groups

-
Why?
Assad is a dictator abusing his people

-Over 100,000 people have died, millions have fled the country

-There is proof chemical weapons (poisonous gas) has been used (not sure exactly by whom)
Opinion 1: We should get involved
-If we allow the use of chemical weapons to go unpunished others may try it
-We can't allow a dictator to do as he/she pleases (ex: allowing Hitler to get away with things before WWII)
-Children and other civilians are being harmed
-We have the power to stop more deaths
-We can use diplomacy (talking it out), sanctions (stopping trade with Syria), and/or military action

If you saw a 6th grader beating up his/her little brothers and sister, would you get involved?
Opinion 2: We shouldn't get involved
-We should allow Syria or its neighboring countries to solve the situation (it isn't our business)
-We have issues at home that demand our attention (poverty, education, crime, drugs, healthcare)
-If we get involved, we are responsible (we have been involved in the Iraq for 10 years because of a situation like this)
-It will cost money and American lives (we lost over 4,000 soldiers, injured over 30,000 American soldiers, and spent over $1 trillion in Iraq)

If you were in an argument/fight with your brother or sister would you want me to come break it up?
