Critical Media AssignmentIntroductionOn April 13, 2018, a missile attack was launched against Syria. The US-led missilesupported by the United Kingdom and France should have issued a warning to Syria, especially toSyrian President Bashar al-Assad. Any further development of chemical weapons will be seriouslyaffected. The target of the missile is the three locations where the Syrian government is developingchemical weapons. Syria has been developing chemical weapons and using them to kill insurgents.The problem is that innocent bystanders are caught in the crossfire. As the United States has usedviolence to achieve peace in Syria, who poses the most serious danger to world peace? Chomsky’sarticle on the “Iranian threat” raised this issue. In this article, Chomsky analyzed the impact of theUnited States on Iran as a serious threat to world peace and a balance of power between the UnitedStates and the Middle East. Iran has always been regarded by the United States as a danger toworld stability and has recently reached a nuclear agreement to prevent Iran from acquiring thesedangerous weapons. However, Chomsky said that the United States may have ulterior motives toregard Iran as the main cause of instability and terrorism in the Middle East. Chomsky continuedto explain that unlike the United States and its allies, Iran is not, and has never really become, amilitary or nuclear threat.

of this article is on the Syrian bombings, as many Syrians are included in the video to comment on air strikes and how they affect the community. "It is unfair to punish criminals. Once he sinned, instead of saying "Syrian news writer. The video also highlights the comments of the Pentagon general. The use of words such as "we believe" and "significant influence" indicates that the UnitedStates is following an educated hypothesis to present their claims. The main question that video should let the audience remember is, "What will air strikes change? After the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation video on the Syrian bombings, I saw CNN's next article on the United
