The speculation that the Syrian government released chemical attacks on its own people has caused President Obama to push for the United States to launch its own attacks on the embattled country. Many Americans are against intervention while the President, and others, think it is what's necessary. But why? And what would US intervention do for Syria and for the United States? Do attacks carry to heavy of a risk or are they needed to protect the US? We pose all of those questions, and more, to Dr. Craig Albert – Assistant Professor of Political Science at Georgia Regents University. He breaks down the conflict in Syria and the ramifications of US involvement.
