I'm not a politician and even not an expert about international relationship, but here I see a problem. I'm referring to the Syrian condition, not the political condition (as I said I'm not an expert) and I've no bases to judge Obama's decision, because I don't know the political and economical reason behind this choice (maybe the pressure made by the US Army Factories?). However, the only thing that I can understand and see are the problems and the sufferance that the syrian people are experiencing. Everyday I hear about explosions, shootings and toxic gasses from the media, so I can only image how the normal citizens in Syria are feeling.
Pope Francis said in one of his last tweets:
"Peace is a good which overcomes every barrier, because it belongs all of humanity.#prayforpeace"
I repeat, I cannot explain the reasons behind this war, the only thing I can do (and suggest to you) is to find a way to help these people. I've met people working into foundations that help people, so I suggest you to take a look to this page: it's a simple way to contribute and help these people in this tragic situation.
