Students expressed concern about possible retailation by Assad's supporters in the event of a U.S. strike.

"I feel that he neglected the fact that if we were to go in and attack that we could have repercussions here in the United States, that there could be something on the home-front," MSU Student and Veteran Aaron Brummitt said.

"I don't think he addressed everything. I don't think he addressed the possible repercussions that could happen if there was as pinpoint strike in Syria," MSU Student Kelsey Kane said.

"He summarized the moral case for an intervention extremely well. That much said, I think he is frankly unable to promise that we're never going to have boots on the ground if we engage in some military pinpoint strikes in Syria. That's a promise he can't really make. So, there is an understandable reluctance and war weariness to get involved in yet another conflict that we're not sure we can fix," Professor David Romano said.
