U.S. military involvement in Syria
As a country, we don’t have the resources or the will to enter into a conflict with Syria. [“Syrians plead their case for, against U.S. military strikes,” page one, Sept. 9.]
We are not the world’s policemen. We are being sucked into a mess, and our less-than-presidential president has put us there.
What little is left of our economy will be gone if we get embroiled in another Middle Eastern mess. If we were to do something, it would be more than likely that our involvement would escalate, due to the fact that the administration has no idea of what they are doing.
One only needs to look at the number of plans they have floated at the Pentagon and the stupid comments they are all making on talk shows. These aren’t leaders, they are a disaster.
If we use a big stick now or later, it won’t make a difference; they know we have the ability if we are interested enough in the issue. Protecting this president’s image is not enough reason and acting without all countries on board with their assets is not a good idea. Stay home.
