- After alleged chemical attack in Syria left hundreds dead, world is mulling action

(CNN) -- Western powers are debating whether to use military force against the Syrian government following an alleged chemical attack in the country which left hundreds dead.
The U.S. has blamed the Syrian government for the attack. Syria, however, has blamed rebels fighting the government in the country’s bloody civil war, which has killed 100,000 in two years.
The recent alleged chemical attack has spurred the international community into action. A CNN/ORC poll from May found that 66% of those polled felt U.S. military action against the Syrian government was justified if it was found to have used to used chemical weapons.
As the crisis continues we want to hear from you -- should the West intervene if chemical weapons have been used? Are they a “red line” in any conflict? Or should the crisis be resolved with other means?
