Mobilians Express Concerns Over Syria

MOBILE, Alabama -

Unrest in the Middle East has Americans talking, worried about what could happen if the U.S. takes action against Syria. If the U.S. intervenes there could be potential risks involved, so not everyone is wanting to jump right in.

"I think we should take a patient approach. At least wait until we get the chemical inspection reports back from the United Nations," said Bo Van Valkenburg.

President Obama says America is ready to strike Syria and right now he's hoping Congress will stand behind him.

U.S. Officials say nearly 1,500 people, including over 400 women and children, have been killed in the alleged chemical attack. Some say it's time we step in and put an end to the violence.

"It's a sad situation, I hate to see the government is killing the people there. It's sad and I would think that someone needs to step in," said Geraldine Jemison.

"I don't like war, but sometimes it's necessary to save people," said Russell White.
