People in central Kentucky gave their opinion today on whether the U.S. should send troops into Syria.

Some say that the United States has enough domestic issues to worry about and should not get involved in another conflict in the Middle East.

Others say, after seeing the pictures of those that have died in Syria's civil war, they feel the U.S. should help in some way.

In a recent national poll done by NBC, 50% of Americans say the U.S. should not send troops into Syria for a large scale assault. Forty-two percent say the U.S. should.

When asked if the U.S. should only use limited, strategic air strikes on Syria, 50% said yes, 40% said no.

Almost 80% of Americans say President Obama should get approval from Congress before any action is taken on Syria.
