It is has long been the moral standard that if someone was in crisis, one should lend a helping hand. In these days where human life is a commodity, it is every more urgent that we do stand up for the bullied, persecuted and innocent victims of war and terrorism. If it was on our shores I would hope that we would hope someone would come to our assistance. In these countries where there is strife and uncertainty, it is hard to comphrehend how one raises a family, builids a life , or has sustained hope for a future. We need to stand for liberty, freedom of speech, the right to stand our ground and live our lives free. The first ammendment written by our forefathers proclaimed this should be for all. This should also include on our shores, or on distant shores..an inalienable right for all and should for fought for, defended and upheld. all measures taken to protect those in peril. So yes we should intervene in Syria a clear message sent that we in this country will defend the innocent all all costs.
