Contrary to what some Americans may want to believe, what is happening in Syria directly affects the Security of the United States.

The international community cannot allow the Syrian chemical weapons to proliferate to extremist groups. If the Kerry initiative to turn over these chemicals is pursued, it must include this possibility and the possibility must be intentionally mitigated.

Extremist groups and other regimes are watching to see how the United States handles this situation and will take from it lessons on how to best attack in the future. Not only may non-intervention serve to arm the enemies of freedom with weapons of mass destruction, any action or inaction in the region will be viewed through the analytical eyes of our enemies.

When it comes to any discussion on the region and its current crisis, however, the root of the problem is Iran. Regardless of the necessity on Syria, no action taken there will not stop Iran in its quest for nuclear arms.

It is important to note that there are more parties present on the ground in Syria than the Assad regime, the Free Syrian Army, and AQ elements. In this debate, the media is ignoring the very people we seek to protect. We endorse U.S. involvement in setting up a no fly zone in Syria for the express purpose of protecting Christians, Kurds and secular Muslims. Any protection of al Qaeda like elements should not be tolerated.

The hasty withdrawal from Iraq precipitated by the current Administration has been damaging to our interests there. This action squandered all of our gains in the region, strengthened Iran, and allowed them direct access to Syria, Lebanon, and the eastern Mediterranean.

President Obama’s weakness on the world stage is doing great harm to America’s diplomatic power, further emboldening our enemies.
