Metroplex residents rally for and against action in Syria

Posted: Updated:

North Texas hosted two rallies related to intervention in Syria this weekend.  The first was Saturday morning in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, where about two dozen residents protested the idea of any sort of U.S. military action in Syria.

"I remember Iraq," said Dan Sullivan.  "I remember Colin Powell, who was a person with a lot of credibility with a lot of people, sitting up there and discussing in detail all this evidence that he said proved there were weapons of mass destruction and there weren't.  And I'm at point where I don't believe it."

On Saturday afternoon, about two dozen people gathered in Dealey Plaza advocating for some sort of intervention in Syria.  Not necessarily military intervention, but they urged the U.S. to take some sort of action.

"We've seen innocent women and children suffocated by gas," said Salem Akkad. "We don't want an invasion like in Iraq... we just want to see some action."

At both rallies, the protestors said they want a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Syria that honors the more than 14-hundred people killed by, what the White House calls, chemical weapons."
