  •  I didn't vote for George W Obama (3+ / 0-)

    Pres Obama should not become a second George W Bush.  I don't want the US to be the world's cop.

    Syria has not attacked the US, and has not threatened the US. If anything, a US attack on Syria, will provoke terrorist attacks against US civilians and we will be less safe from terrorists and mistreated by our own government.

    If the rebel forces in Syria prevail, it is far from clear the Syrian people or the US will benefit from the change.

    We have fought in too many Muslim countries already. We are hated in that world as much or more as when Bush was president.  For some reason, waging wars against Muslim people has not made them like us.

    Governments in many countries from time to time do terrible things to their people, and have done so for thousands of years and will do so in the future.  These terrible actions frequently focus on those opposing those in power.  The difference today is that global media now gives us up to date high quality video of these terrible acts instead of a few articles from journalists.

    High quality video is not a reason to act against the interest of US citizens.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
