America May Delay Military Strike Against Syria

The U.S. appears ready to take military action against Syrian President Bashar Al Assad for his reported use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people.  But others say it  might be better to wait for independent neutral confirmation of such an attack.

The blast sent thick smoke billowing across the capital's skyline, killing dozens of people and causing widespread destruction, before a nearby military headquarters came under mortar attack, a watchdog and media reported.

University of Houston Political Science professor Cyrus Contractor says the U.S. feels it has a moral imperative to act and to do so quickly.

But he says it may be in America’s best interest to wait until United Nations inspectors complete their investigation on the matter.

Contractor says it might be better  “internationally and regionally, if perhaps there was, if you will neutral verification of those weapons be used.”

He says while the  U.S. wants to stop future chemical attacks, it has made it clear America does not want to get involved in Syria’s civil war that has been raging for over 2-years.
