Subject: Re: Recent Syrian Missile Strike

Forum: Recent Syrian Missile Strike
As a graduate, I sometimes pop in to Cnet when I have a few minutes, and then usually don't bother posting. This is my kind of post and the kind I feel there should be more of! Great topic Rebecca.

I am happy to see America take a stance on Syria as there are horrible things happening there. That being said, I feel that missile strikes were not the place to start. If we really cared about Syrian children and other innocent citizens, we would start by letting them come to our country as refugees. If we had allowed more refugees to come here and escape the horrors of their country's civil war, then they wouldn't have been there to be gassed in the first place. We also would have increased monetary aid to Syria and Syrian refugees, rather that cut it. For example, did you know that Trump has cut aid that was previously spent to ensure that Syrian women were able to deliver their babies in safe locations?

Let's not kid ourselves, Trump is a narcissist. The strikes in Syria were about him looking like the Big Man calling the shots. This was a wag-the-dog move to distract us from the fact that he isn't really doing anything except spend tax payer money to take trips to Maralago. If he stayed in Washington where he belonged and had his wife and son move there too, we would have money to pay for US AID, public TV/radio (those who know me previously will know that I am an avid NPR listener), the arts, our national park system, Meals on Wheals, and other programs that have been or are on the chopping block.

While I applaud action taken to put a stop to atrocities in any country, I don't know that I support missile strikes, especially without consulting Congress first. The thought of our current president being in charge of "the button" has literally caused me to lose sleep. I try to assuage my anxiety by reminding myself that we have checks and balances in place that are supposed to protect us. Let's hope they work!

I haven't been on CollegeNET very often over the last year, but with all the crazy news over the last week, I thought it might be fun to check in. I'm disappointed to find very few topics of substance.

What's up with that? Are you watching the news?

I marched yesterday with my husband and my oldest daughter in Spokane, Washington.

There were 8,000 in attendance! They had planned for 2,000 to 4,000.

Hey Cnet! Just checking in to ask a couple quick questions about yesterday's Women's March.

Did you march?

Where?

How many people were there with you?
