It seems that NATO would want to strike against Syria even though there is no UN resolution on the situation there.
I don't know whether any possible military strike is being promoted because of concern for civilians but it appears strange to me that NATO can take action against a country because one of its members is being threatened. What happened when two of its key members were at war with each other in July 1974 in Cyprus? All mighty NATO was incapable then to prevent that?? The word double standards comes to mind?
