Greenwood Doctor Says U.S. Should Move Against Assad
A Greenwood doctor of Syrian descent says it's time for the U.S. to take military action against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
Dr. Ahmad Rami Saltagi says Assad is behind countless atrocities including the use of chemical weapons against his own people. For that, Saltagi says the United Nations and neighboring nations should also take action. Saltagi says he doesn't think Russia, which has backed Assad, would interfere with a military move aimed at protecting Syrian civilians.
Saltagi says he has family members who still live in Syria and he's concerned about them. He says Syrian civilians are peaceful people and Syria was once a place where people of different religions lived in peace.
