HARRISONBURG -- New numbers out that Wednesday show a majority of Americans are against any U.S. military action in Syria.

America is still waiting on a decision from Congress on whether to make a move in Syria.

But people here in the Valley are split on what the United States should do.

"I think some sort of action should be taken in Syria, I don't know if it would be ground forces or drones strikes, I don't know what the options are. But in a case like this, where there are war crimes happening that we have already established as a super power that we are going to react to, we probably should take action," said Austin Dixon.

"I don't think that we should go in, but obviously that's out of my hands. I never think that, who wants to start a new war," said Hayley O'Brien.

In the latest ABC News / Washington Post poll, six out of ten Americans oppose unilateral U.S. military missile strikes against Syria. But some feel they don't have enough information to make a decision.

Korinna Weber is a James Madison University student and feels the U.S. shouldn't get involved.

"I really don't think the U.S. should be getting involved with any other country's business at the moment. Especially if not everybody, all the soldier are out of Iraq and Iran and Middle East yet. I think we need to focus on the home front and our domestic concerns," said Weber.

Shadi Sabbagh lives in Harrisonburg and has not made a decision.

"For me personally I would do what's best for the economy. Ultimately that's what will be the effected the most," said Sabbagh.

We would like to hear your thoughts. Should the United States get involved and use military force against Syria?
