We can help the people of Syria by helping them get a good education. We know for certain that air strikes will create chaos. Real goodwill lies in helping neighboring countries improve education, health resources and food guarantees for poor people. America wants to stop the ruthless attack upon its own civilians by Syria's government. But due to the recession prevailing in Europe and Asia many countries do not wish to participate in a military action against Syria.
Similarly, other Muslim nations may not like an attack on a sister nation. They may retaliate. This will make the USA fearful of revenge attacks from other Muslim nations. Let us focus on building bridges instead of throwing bombs.
