U.S. and Syria Reach Deal on Chemical Weapons

For the past several days on 5 News, we've been telling you all about the crisis going on in Syria, and the possible threat of a U.S. missile strike.

It looks like that plan is off the table, at least for now.

Officials from Russia, Syria, and the U.S. all met this week to figure out the best form of diplomacy so we wouldn't strike Syria, and it looks like that deal has been reached.

Syria has agreed to hand over the control of their entire chemical weapons arsenal so they can ultimately be destroyed.

Some of you think though this is good news, but we'll never be out of the woods entirely.

"I think if they confiscate their chemical weapons, safety will get better for now, but it won't last," said Kathy Richison, Clarksburg resident.

Others still believe the U.S. can't be the world's police department and help the world out with their problems, and this resolution will only take time to see if it truly makes a difference.

"Only time will tell. We may have heart to do something like that, but in reality, it's none of our business," said Bob Barton, Bridgeport resident.

Secretary of State John Kerry threatened the Assad regime, saying if they do not follow their strict guidelines, the United States is still prepared to act.
