“I think he should stay out of Syria. I personally believe that interventionist policies are counter-productive when there are some problems going on in our own country…And I also believe that you cannot solve Syrian problems with American solutions.”
“If I were Obama, I would play it by ear but I would definitely make them turn over their weapons, being that its definitely genocide to open up on your own people and over 1000 people died. But I wouldn’t start a war because its not our problem.”

“If I were Obama, I would not go to war. I would reach out and try some diplomatic solutions to the conflict. I think its in the best interest of not only the Syrians but for the American people.”
