Rosie O'Donnell Criticizes American Bombing Of Syria

Rosie O'Donnell spoke out against America's bombing campaign in Syria on Wednesday's "View."

Speaking just as President Obama was telling the United Nations about his plans to extend American military involvement in the Middle East, O'Donnell said she was troubled by the situation.

"It's scary to me to think that when I had my last baby twelve years ago, we were just getting into a war and she was one, and now I have another one-year-old, and we just bombed another country," she said. "We went to war yesterday in America against another country in the Mideast. And to me no matter what, that's wrong, because you don't fight violence with violence."

O'Donnell also hinted that she thinks Syria's oil reserves have something to do with American involvement there.

"I do think there’s a financial agenda attached to it," she said. Nobody else on the panel agreed.
