Stay out of Syria

September 7, 2013 

Syria is a loose, loose situation if we get involved because who can identify the good people? Oh, yeah, they are the ones herded on the military sites as targets.

Both sides are bad guys, so why would we want to risk sending our youths to defend something we cannot even identify? At least we thought we had targets in Iraq and Afghanistan until we found out that the Middle East Islamic culture is not suited to our culture and morals.

So why jump in now? Because President Obama wants to destroy the United States.

If we attack, it would give the Islamic countries an incentive to attack Israel and we could not respond soon enough, or with enough manpower, to protect Israel. Do we need another Holocaust?

Who would pay? America's youth, and we would lose world respect.
