'Airstrike on Syria is too risky'
The USA and its allies are deciding how to respond to Syria after many people were killed in a chemical attack.
Political Scientist and commentator at the University of Pretoria, Roland Henwood says the notion that Russia is involved may be on oversimplification.
I don't think the Russians are directly involved. There is no indication of that. The problem, however, is that they may know what the Syrians are doing and that's where the problem comes between the two countries.Roland Henwood, Political Scientist and Commentator at the University of Pretoria
Henwood says there are huge risks in using airstrikes and questions what the US want to achieve with such actions.
Do you want to send a message that we don't support the use of chemicals weapons? Who are you going attack in that process? Or do you want to escalate the war?Roland Henwood, Political Scientist and Commentator at the University of Pretoria
