SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Two local Syrians are weighing in on the conflict in Syria.

Merna and Hala Maida believe the United States should not plan a military attack on Syria.

The two sisters who grew up in Syria admit the Syrian government is a corrupt dictatorship, but said when they lived in Syria, they had some freedom.

The sisters say rebels and al Qaeda are behind the violence.

The Maida sisters want an election so the people can decide who runs Syria but, in the meantime they want Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to get control of the country and get the rebels and al Qaeda out.
