1. It's a humanitarian issue. When innocent civilians are being massacred so horribly, we feel a moral imperative to stop it.
2. Obama made the use of chemical weapons the "line in the sand". And that line has clearly been crossed. Therefore, the U.S. has to make some sort of military response, or the word of the President of the United States means nothing.
