The Americans shouldn’t intervene Syria

It is hard on some countries that are in war with USA as USA has their best military. There can be many conflicts if we intervene Syria. Even if Syria attacks back on USA, Syrians might have some major power that they try to attack one of the best military forces in the world.

Also establishing the no fly zone and the safe zones in the Syrian territory. Already before going to war against Syria other countries have started favoring USA and want to help the US so that they can put Syria down and improve their relationships with USA.
