Professor: More Than Just Bombing Or Inaction in Syria
The situation in the Middle East is roiling once again. On KSOO’s Viewpoint University, Dr. Joe Dondelinger says there are more options than just bombing Syria or sitting idly.
The Chair of Government and International Affairs/Political Science Department at Augustana College in Sioux Falls says a great disservice is done if all options are not explored. Diplomatically the U.S. could ask, “Is this the world you want?” to an international community. Documentation of what happened must take place. Then after the findings are released, raise the issue internationally. Then you shame those who support the use of chemical weapons. Criminal charges can be brought and the Assad regime can be tried for crimes against humanity. Bombing is the easy way in and doing nothing is the coward’s way out.
