US military intervention in Syria will damage US reputation and the economy. It is an unwarranted intervention that Congress is not likely to approve, and it will not make Americans safer. Instead it will expose the the country to the same blowback and hostility that we have been seeing for more than 10 years. This is not the right time for the US to police international agreements. Finally, US military intervention is not supported by the American people. This plan should be set aside, for more pressing matters.
