SYRIAN-AMERICANS NOT SO ANXIOUS FOR OBAMA TO ATTACK
Along Main Street, in Paterson, NJ's Middle Eastern neighborhood, many Syrians I interviewed for 1010 WINS aren't very enamored with Pres. Obama's plans to attack their homeland. Many say they are sickened by what Pres. Assad is doing. But they say it's none of the business of the United States. Our money, many say, should be spent on helping Americans still suffering economically.
Several suggested that perhaps, despite the evidence presented by the administration, the chemical weapons attack may not have been ordered by Assad.
One man I interviewed, however, says not only should Obama attack, he shouldn't wait for congressional approval. Hesitating, he argues, just gives Assad opportunity to attack again and again.
