In Yemen, Syrians were protesting over the thirty-three year long rule of Ali Abdullah Saleh. These protests were pretty violent as the people were fighting hand to hand against the Syrian Armed Forces. As the problems escalated, an airstrike was launched to stop the fighting. The strikes were said to have been launched from American drones which unfortunately is not uncommon. The strike killed at least 9 people, including a teen of seventeen years of age. There has to be a way to stop violence without drone strikes. The strikes are costing too many lives. Do you have an solution to propose? Throughout history people have used non-violence to make change; is it possible in Syria? Should the US be using drones to drop bombs on people?
