The United States nearly intervened in Syria for the right reasons. They wanted to help out a country that was being taken advantage of, The United States are known for trying to make world peace and intervene to be the sort of “big brother” of weaker/smaller countries. One of the main reasons they wanted to intervene was because Syria was using chemical weapons and the US had to prevent that from happening and allowing governments or groups of people to take complete control over innocent people. The reason they didn’t intervene was to avoid engaging in a war of bombs and to put the people in the US in danger. I think we should intervene in the sense of trying to talk it out or which ever other forms of non violent contact to sort of fix the situation instead of ignite it.
