Why does the bombings matter?

The bombings that are going on between the United States and Syria is important because many innocent lives are being took away. Bashar Hafez al-Assad is the 19th and current President of Syria, holding the office since 17 July 2000.The United States bombed Syria to end Assad’s, Syrian president, reign. April 10, 2017 CNN National Security Analyst, Juliette Kayyem reported,”…why did we bomb Syria? The explanations have varied: It was merely a message; it was a line in the sand; it was America asserting a moral standard; it was to scare Assad; to it was to pivot from Obama’s legacy; it was to end Assad’s reign.” Assad was bombing his own Syrians so the United States stepped in and bombed Syria. With the United States bombing Syria, the bomb killed many children and innocent Syrians. March 25, 2017 Barbra Starr, CNN Pentagon Specialist reported, “…bombs dropped in a neighborhood by US warplanes resulted in the deaths of more than 200 civilians.”
