After Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on his own people and killed innocent men, women, and children in the process, it was only a matter of time before the United States made a decision on how they would react. On Thursday night, President Donald Trump decided to launch his own attack on a Syrian airbase, which has resulted in a mixed reaction.

"The View" on Syria

The civil war in Syria has been going on for some time, as multiple factions on the ground fight to take over and secure different parts of land for themselves.

As the ISIS and other radical groups move in, the Syrian government is being backed by Russia and Iran to fight back against other Islamic terrorists, as well as rebel factions. Caught in the cross-hairs have been thousands of innocent civilians, with many losing their lives. After Donald Trump decided to retaliate by launching over 50 tomahawk cruise missiles into the Syrian airbase, backlash quickly followed, which was evident during the April 7 edition of "The View" on ABC.

During a heated segment on "The View," conservative co-host Jedediah Bila attempted to make her case for why Donald Trump was right to act as he did against Syria. "I love what he did, I am very proud of President Trump," Bila said, pointing out that he enforced the so-called "red line" that former President Barack Obama backed off on.

At this point, co-host joy behar noted that Obama attempted to take action against Syria, but failed to do so because he tried to go through Congress, unlike Trump.

"If he had not gone to Congress, they would have impeached him!" Joy Behar told Jedediah Bila. At this point, fellow co-host Sonny Hostin cited the War Powers Resolution of 1973 which argues against a sitting president taking action on issues of war without first seeking and getting approval of Congress to move forward.

"President Trump did not have the authority to do this without Congress," Hostin explained.

Moments later, "The View" co-host Paula Faris said that those who aren't "affected by looking at those pictures" in Syria, need to "question your humanity!" Joe Behar wasn't happy with her remarks, and fired back.

"Please!," Behar said, before adding, "This isn't personal. It’s not about questioning anybody’s humanity!" After Behar said it was simply a discussion about a "military operation," Faris replied, "We're talking about dead children!"

Moving forward

Not long after the missiles were launched into Syria, Donald Trump addressed the issue during a pre-planned statement reading at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump claimed it was in the best interest of the United States' national security to act against Syria, but it looks like the reaction has been mixed from the American people.
