Local Reaction to US involvement in Iraq Crisis

Posted:
 SALISBURY, Md.- As the United States continues to help those involved in the Iraq crisis, people locally have a lot to say about the matter.

Although tens of thousands of miles away, people here on Delmarva feel for those people.

"We have to look around the world. There's a lot of things happening," said Ronald Scott of Delmar. "You have to look biblical too. God predicted things were going to happen and how he handle it is how we're going to come out of it, and I pray that we do come out of it."

As the US launched airstrikes to prevent Islamic militants from killing more people, some locals stand by the nation's decision to get involved.

"I think we should have gotten involved," said Scott. "I mean we have people dying over there. I think there's a genocide going on out there right now. People just killing people. So everybody just look for us to step in and do something because we're the only super power in the world that can step in and do something. We have the military do it, and I think we should do something about it."

Others on the other hand are torn on the matter.

"First of all, all the times you're going to help people it's going to be a good idea," said Karvens Nizere of Salisbury, "But if the USA has something to loose by helping those people, I think it's going to be a bad idea."

Agree or disagree, President Obama says the airstrikes and humanitarian assistance drops could go on for months as Iraq leaders try and build a new government.
