Kassem Eid, a 2013 Syrian chemical weapon attack survivor, believes that Barack Obama's inaction in Syria helped ISIS recruit more soldiers and that the U.S. should continue to pursue Assad for the use of chemical weapons.
â€œPresident Obama broke his promise for the red line and his argument was that heâ€™s going to take Assadâ€™s chemical weapons, well he lied,â€ he told FOX Businessâ€™ Neil Cavuto. â€œObamaâ€™s inaction in Syria helped [in] fueling ISIS with the propaganda that says the west doesnâ€™t care about you, that America doesnâ€™t care about youâ€¦ That made a lot of people, a lot of ignorant and angry people, unfortunately, join ISIS.â€
Eid said that he supported President Trumpâ€™s immediate action to launch Tomahawk missiles against the Syrian airbase on Thursday without Congressâ€™s approval.
â€œPresident Trumpâ€™s action was very, very good because if he will go to Congress and he will wait, he will give Assad a chance to maneuver.â€
Some people argue that if the U.S. helped the rebels take out the Syrian President, someone worse may take his place, but Eid said he doubts anyone can be â€œworseâ€ than Assad.
â€œAssad killed 500,000 people, for the love of God. He displaced half of the country, he destroyed the country. He gassed women and childrenâ€¦ Heâ€™s worse than Hitler.â€
