TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - As the crisis in Syria continues, some who are acquainted with the facts are speaking out.
Colonel William Hanna from the U.S Army, served for 30 plus years in several operations, from Vietnam to Desert Storm. Like most, he's glued to the updates in Syria. For him, there is an extra dimension to it all.
His grandparents emigrated from Syria, right at the turn of the 20th century. Hanna said their influence helped shape his life.
However, now he's concerned about what's happening. From a military standpoint, Hanna doesn't think a U.S. assault would be the best thing for the nation. He said the United States doesn't have worldwide support, and that could prove to be costly.
"We'll not gain anything. We'll create more hatred, and you can expect more 9-11s to come here. That's my concern," Hanna said.
