This iReport is part of an assignment:
In Syria there is an uprising in people trying to get rid of their leader. Their leader wont step down and the people started to get violent. The government’s reaction was to use poisonous gases to control the people and killed thousands. The reason this has been had been taking kids and beating them.
Syria has recently been using chemical gases to control the rioters which have resulted in thousands of dead civilians. This has caused problems for other country’s such as the US because the said if Syria use chemical warfare they would intervene to help stop it. Now they have to choose, should they help the rebels like they said they would, and possibly get in another civil war; or should they stay out of it and let thousands of people die and break their promise.
If I was in charge of the US government I would tell the Syrian government to stop using poisonous gases or else we would come and put a stop to it our self. I would do that because if you make a threat you have to follow it up when they do it. Also, if we didn’t help them and break our promise it would give the US a bad reputation.
