Request no intervention

The killing of the Syrian civilian population by their government is outrageous. The killing of innocent Syrian men, women and children should not be the responsibility of their government; it’s our job. Somehow, our killing the Syrian civilian population, through Tomahawk launches, or air strikes, will punish the current regime? Once again, we are being forced to fight in another made-up war, fueled by the same lies as the infamous “weapons of mass destruction.”

I am a 100 percent disabled veteran opposed to our incredibly stupid foreign policies that always/must lead to war. The news on Sept. 4 stated that 26 percent of U.S. citizens are for our intervention and 48 percent are opposed. Obviously, we are no longer represented by our Congress.

I have emailed my representatives and requested that they oppose this idiocy. I urge you to do the same.
