The Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD's) in Syria
Far out into the East of the Atlantic Ocean lies Syria, a country equipped with a ridiculous amount of Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMD's. The risk of WMD proliferation has now significantly increased. During March of 2013 and February of 2014, the Syrian government and rebel forces has been accusing each other of discharging a deadly chemical near the city of Aleppo, although, what exactly happened remains foggy. The misuse of WMD's is a clear violation of the agreement established between both countries by the United Nations, serves as a huge threat to countries, and these weapons have more resourceful uses such as being disassembled and reused as fuel.
The United Nations (UN)
The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization established on October 24, 1945 to promote international co-operation. As a replacement for the ineffective League of Nations, the organization was created following the Second World War to prevent another such conflict. At its founding, the UN had 51 member states; there are now 193. The sole purpose was to protect and unite each and every committing and co-operating member country. Syria, on the other hand, has apparently chosen not to obey their restrictions and defied the oath they have taken when joining the UN. Instead, they decided to abuse their privileges of keeping their chemical weapons and not using them at any point what so ever. The US faces a serious threat to Syria’s WMD’s. In fact, Syria’s weaponry arsenal and keep-safe warehouses are so profoundly massive that military planners estimate that it would take 750,000 ground troops to secure them.

...is playing a huge role in what is soon to become “World War 3”. The UN has tried and hoped to fully succeed in building up a strong foundation and agreement between the numerous nations, countries, and lands involved in the organization, but then countries like Syria come in and throw acid rain on the UN’s parade. Instead of ALL countries worldwide forming one alliance in which the words enemies or threats do not exist, there are the countries that choose to want to corrupt the world’s potential peace formation. Rather than firing these “country-killers” from nation to nation, suppliers should rather invest their weapons in disassembly lines and car fuel. All in all, Syria is and has been frowned upon for several years because of their intolerable behavior and uncontrollable usage of WMD’s and this is an issue only an extremely powerful force can solve.
