POLL: Is the UK right to launch air strikes on Syria?

A Dassault Rafale fighter aircraft is prepared for airstrikes in Syria at Saint Dizier airbase, eastern France. A Syrian military statement says the U.S., Britain and France fired 110 missiles during a joint attack on targets in Damascus and outside.

Recent polling from YouGov has reported that Britons are split over the decision to take military action against Syria.

Russia has accused the UK of staging a chemical attack which killed dozens of people, while the US and France, along with the UK, say they have proof that it happened.

Prime Minister Theresa May has said the intervention was necessary to show that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.

Others feel that the action will simply escalate the situation, and fear a possible retaliation from Russia.

What do you think? Do you think the UK has made the right move with taking action against Syria?
