Syria –U.S. Unilateral Air Strike against Syria

U.S. Unilateral Air Strike against Syria might be welcome from corners that regards projection of military might as sign of strength especially when own human rights record speaks volume on abuse and atrocities committed whether that is complicity on 9/11 attacks in American soil in 2001, or ramming over people during peaceful assembly in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

Similarly, in 2003 in occupied Palestine, a brave young American citizen Rachel Corrie killed under a bull dozer by close ally Israel who is also U.S. tax dollars aid recipient.

Such violent actions glorified as defiance defines the character of those and the lack of inherent human value in them. These attributes cause the downfall sooner than later.

On the economic standpoint, the U.S. launched Tomahawk missiles costing tax payers $1.59 million a piece with 59 of them fired away and 36 wasted with 23 hitting the Syrian air field could hardly be prudence for Presidency with business background.

That means the actual tax payers in the U.S. economy had to foot the bill for $93.81million to showcase the American Presidency showmanship which is nothing more than capitulation to hawkish elements drumroll to attack causing more civilian casualties as sympathy towards people in Syria. This move is anything but a smart strategy.

Interestingly, fiscal responsibility is eliminated in such endeavor as they are reserved for critical issues like health care and education reminding American citizens that United States is not a welfare nation but has no problem expending on few missiles to expand defense budget.

Wisdom is a gift that provides guidance on matter requiring diligence while folly commands impulsive reaction.

Thank you.
