Obama's threat turned the tide with Syria

While I don't remember calling Leon Anderson a "warmonger," I was pleased to see his recent letter. Condemnation from Anderson and his pals is like a compliment from someone I respect. Its seems funny that some guys know the answer to all the world problems but never earned a degree in political science or governmental affairs, and can't solve the local or county problems as well as they do with world affairs.

I think I will stick with those who do. Things that appear obvious to the general public rarely have enough facts, for those who know the truth, to make a decision. I know much more, as does anyone who has a computer. That says it all for me. We all know how he feels, and many his age have felt that way all their lives.
