Syria crisis hits close to Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE- Dima Alghazzy moved to the United States from Syria when she was 23, she's now 34.
She told CBS 58 that watching tragedy unfold in the country where she spent most of her life is heart breaking.
"It's hard to watch all that destruction," she said.
Alghazzy said she still visits Syria often, many of her family members still live there.
On Friday the President said America is weary and hesitant about another war and he's considering a wide range of options.
He said one of those options does not involve putting American boots on the ground in the worn torn country.
According to UWM Professor Shale Horowitz, this may be similar to President Clinton using air strikes in the 90's against Yugoslavia.
Alghazzy agreed with the President about boots on the ground, she said the Syrian people don't want that.
According to her, what they people want is for the US to strike vital positions like air fields, artillery points, and command and control centers.
She said that will force Assad, Syria's leader, to go to the negotiating table.
