None of the above?
Today I got a survey from one of my reps in Congress asking me what I thought the US should do about Syria. He listed a number of options and asked me to choose one .... do nothing, limited military strike, full attack, humanitarian aid only, etc. and I realized I don't know what to choose. As a mostly pacifist, I lean toward the humanitarian aid only option, but the assumption I see everywhere online - that doing nothing equals peace - seems deluded .... the reason this is an issue at all is that people have been killed, are now being killed, and will continue to be killed. Killing more people just to make a point seems wrong, and doing nothing while people die also seems wrong. I don't know what's best so I can't fill out the survey :(
