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.
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.
"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.
