As many of you know this last week has been all about the use of chemical weapons by either Assad or opposition forces and whether or not the United States should get involved militarily.
It is this blogger’s opinion that military action in Syria would only be a band-aid to the real nation that influences much of the terrorist and political activity in the Middle East: Iran. Also, as a follower of Christ who is trying to embrace pacifism as much as possible, I do not want to see more violence or blood shed. America cannot be the police of the world. While we should not condone the use of chemical weapons we must do our best to evaluate and use all of our options before using any type of military options. My mentor Ron Boehme has a good article about what the bigger picture of the events in the Middle East could awaken…check it out here!
I think we need to be in prayer for President Obama and other people of influence in our government and military to make the best decision. Pray for those in Syria and contact your Congressman (or woman) about your opinion on the issue.
