A chemical warfare was launched in Syria on August 21, 2013. The population of Damascus suburbs targeted and caused 1,429 death and many other injuries.This event lead the U.S. to speculate that Bashar Assad's regime was responsible for this act since the rebel had no means neither the equipment to launch a raid of this magnitude. President Barack Obama wants to send U.S. military to intervene in the present situation in Syria to aid rebels and population against their political dictator. This method is believed to be the fastest response for assistance. Contradiction and disbelief in Obama's proposition for military interference are hold by the Communist government of China and ex-communist Russia. President Vladimir Putin retains the U.S military intervention in this act for a more diplomatic solution to the case. The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov proposed last monday to the Assad's regime to hand over the Chemical weapon in order to prevent the American military intervention. The acceptance of this trade by the Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem as not brought any progress so far since no chemical weapon as been retrieved or given by the Syria government. While the dispute goes on wether Assad's regime is taking this proposal seriously or only agreed to obtain a release from the U.S military, the argument still remain for the best method between drastic intervention to support and aid the Syrian citizen or passive diplomacy by respecting their revolution and government borders. The military intervention seems as the best option to rapidly aid the population in distress and in need for medical assistance as Obama suggest. This intervention support the humanistic need of aid for survival since the population health is greatly damage by these chemical raid on populated cities. On the other hand where Putin supports the diplomatic view from a moral stand point to respect each others fronts and different type of government it contains where other political figures have no hand in other in their political affairs, but this argument comes into controversy since values are in to play whether the life of the innocent Syrian civilians are worth sacrificing for the belief of democracy. This ethical issue could be debated on both views between political freedom and sanctity of life. The debate should be viewed for the greater good and the golden rule since human life are at stake and suffering, there is not a nation in the world that should live such a tragedy or be force to live throughout to wait for aid. Any support at this stage should be sent even if military. While congress debates and argues the on the decision to send military intervention we wait for Assad's response to hand over the chemical weapons, should we keep waiting while the innocent Syrian population suffer and struggle for survival and in need for aid?
