Forum: Stay out of Syrian crisis

Updated: October 12, 2013 6:36AM



American military intervention in Syria would be a mistake. The humanitarian crisis that has already affected millions of lives will only be worsened by a U.S. attack. Diplomatic avenues to achieve a ceasefire have yet to be exhausted.

Entering this conflict in support of al-Qaida-affiliated “rebel” forces appears to be a calculated move by the Obama administration.

On the anniversary of 9/11, this would be a disastrous irony we cannot afford.
