HUNTINGTON - War-weary Americans are divided over the possibility of entering into a military conflict with Syria.

Long Islanders on Main Street in Huntington had strong opinions over a possible strike.

"We know we have a certain responsibility as Americans to do the right thing," Roberta Buble said. "I hope that if a strike goes through that it's a limited strike."

John Marcinka, of Huntington, says the United Nations should take the lead.

"It would be a lot more helpful if we had more countries backing it … more than just us and France," Marcinka said.

Others say they don't think America should get involved.

"I don't think we should have anything to do with it at this stage," Brian Steinky said. "The Middle East is a mess. We should stay away."

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is accused of using chemical weapons on his own people, killing more than 1,400.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said any military action could create more turmoil. He cautioned that such strikes would be legal only in self-defense or if approved by the U.N. Security Council.
