America's Involvement in Syria

Americans Should Not Wait for Politicians to Help Syrian War Victims

Some 12.2 million people, more than half of the population, are estimated to need humanitarian assistance. A similar number have been displaced—between 6.5 million and 7.8 million within Syria and three to four million on to neighboring states. Americans can’t be expected to make Syrians’ war their own. But they are an ever generous people who should do what they can to help other peoples in desperate need. There’s no reason for them to wait for politicians to act. One of the best ways to help those suffering from the Syrian conflict is through private relief groups.
