Opinions divided as US bombs Syria in response to chemical attack
Protesters gathered in New York City and Allentown, Pennsylvania to speak out against the U.S. conducting air strikes against Syrian military targets on Thursday evening. Many protesters said there simply was not enough proof of the Assad regime conducting chemical weapons attacks against the Syrian people, and condemned the U.S. intervening in a foreign conflict. The U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. says that the U.S. airstrikes in Syria were “fully justified.” While, some Syrian-Americans and non-resident Syrians have welcomed the bombings. In the times of turmoil, the question is will Syria become the new Iraq?
