CNN Student News Discussion

According to CNN Student News, why does President Obama have authorization to strike ISIS in Syria and Iraq? Why is it important that the United States and Israel strike Syria now? Do you feel that the United States should be taking action against Syria?

    • President Obama has authorization to strike ISIS in Syria and Iraq because in 2012 Congress passed a law declaring that Obama can use the army on anyone involved in 9/11, which Syria and Iraq have been accused of. It is important that we strike Syria now because over 600 terrorists have been found and killed. I feel like America should take action about it to prevent any further attacks from terrorists.
