This is not a scientific poll by any means, but with the top news story around the world: Will the U.S. attack Syria?

Based on alleged Bashar al-Assad approved use of chemical attacks and the death of more than 1,400 civilians including at least 400 children, is a military strike warranted?

(Note: There does not seem to be any doubt that chemicals were used and did kill civilians and children, but did Assad approve this? Or was it by anti-Assad supporters trying to invoke Int'l involvement?)

^^^ Just things to consider!!

Just recently it was reported:

With public opinion and Congressional momentum against him, President Obama attempted to recalibrate expectations and redouble his sales effort for targeted military strikes, during a press conference Friday in Russia after a meeting of the G-20.

He made clear that his priority was winning support for strikes from a majority in Congress, even if a majority of the American people do not back the effort. “It’s conceivable that at the end of the day, I don’t persuade a majority of the American people that it’s the right thing to do. And then each member of Congress is gonna have to decide,” Obama said, noting that he was aware of recent polls showing broad opposition to strikes. “Ultimately, you listen to your constituents, but you’ve also got to make some decisions about what you believe is right for America.”



On Tuesday, Obama plans to take his case directly to the American people, with an address from the White House. “Our polling operations are pretty good, you know, I tend to have a pretty good sense of what current popular opinion is,” he said. “ For the American people who have been through over a decade of war now with enormous sacrifice—and blood and treasure—any hint of further military entanglements in the Middle East are going to be viewed with suspicion.”

So ATS'ers, based upon what you know, read, heard, a chance for you to be counted:

1.) YES, the U.S.should strike Syria?

2. NO, the U.S. should not strike Syria?

I will try to keep track and post periodic poll results. Thanks for participating if you wish!!!

If there is confirmation by a third party that the government used chemical weapons, then the international community needs to band together and resolve it together.

Otherwise, no.
