The world news has been centered on the Syrian conflict for a number of days. This is because of the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime on its citizens. With deaths amounting to more than a thousand young men and women including children due to chemical weapons, the world especially the United States are forced to take a look for a possible solution to the Syrian conflict. As horrifying as the deaths of hundreds of children are,  the United Nations are still in limbo as to what to do. They have been in limbo for the past 2 years since this conflict has started.

As a simple person who wants to help prevent atrocities like the killing of hundreds of children, I wanted to educate myself with what is going on in the world that I am living in.  There are a lot of debate as to what is the best solution to this problem. Some say it is time to attack the Syrian government for murdering the lives of the innocent children and thousands more its citizens. Some would say that the Syrian people should take action and let them solve their own problems.  I say we must stop the killing in Syria, that is what the UN is for. It should uphold the rights of every person especially women and children. We must work towards ending this conflict once and for all. One thing we must do is to act not tomorrow but today.
