We need to stay out of Syria

The hawks would like to start another war in Syria, claiming rights to condemn Syrian President Bashar Assad for using chemicals. We should not go off half-cocked, with hand-fed skewed intel, as we did in Iraq!

Just as George. W. Bush did not sign the criminal court treaty established in 2002, Assad never signed the treaty on using chemicals! Therefore, there is no foot to stand on for American to get involved in aggressive tactics toward Syria.

America cannot afford another war! We have no right to get involved, except to pray the killing stops.

Americans can do something about murders of innocent people — get automatic weapons off the streets of America! Charity begins at home, and our focus should be on violence in our streets, not the Middle East.
