The United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK) and France launched air strikes last night upon Bashar al Assad's Syrian installations in response to the regime's chemical agent attacks upon innocents.
While the action of western powers must be commended as a means to deter Assad from using chemical weapons on civilians, and as US President Donald Trump hailed the operation as "mission accomplished", I beg to differ. Syrian children and civilians will continue to die at the hands of Assad and his cohorts in crimes against humanity.
Surgical attacks upon chemical weapons installations in Syrian are not sufficient to close the gross tragedy of the Syrian war. Once gain, while western powers must be commended for doing something rather than nothing in the face of an ongoing assault upon humanity in Syria, last night's operation did not go far enough to return civility to Syria and to its people.
If anything else, last night's western operation within Syria proves that it is within the scope of western nations to close the Syrian war and render justice and normalcy back to the Syrian children and people. It is possible to stop the Syrian carnage, but reacting nations must be willing to go farther to bring it to futurity.
Ending the Syrian war would also de-escalate another looming migration crisis for Europe. If chemical installations could be found, then so could Bashar al Assad, who stands as the determinant perpetrator of the Syrian tragedy.
Syria's mission has not been accomplished. Finir la guerre! End the Syrian war!
