Item! Treat not Just the Symptoms but also the Problems

We Americans are encouraged from many quarters, foreign and domestic, to rescue the refugees from Syria. 

Now, President Trump has taken direct action to strike at the fundamental reason so many people are fleeing Syria. 

And he is criticized. 

His loyal (and not so loyal) opposition should explain why America should not take action to end the brutality in Syria. 

We should be willing to do more than treat the symptoms of the problems in Syria.
