Illustrious leader? Hardly

October 1, 2013 

The idiotic blather that comes from a certain letter writer from Collinsville seems to never end. He loves our illustrious leader (?) without fail.

This presidenthas failed us on so many fronts, one knows not where to begin. But his Syria initiative is bizarre in the least. Who can trust Syrian President Assad or Russian President Putin or Iran or even our president?

The world would have been rid of Assad more than a year ago if we'd instituted a no-fly-zone in Syria and given assistance to the rebels. Now Syria is becoming a haven for radicals because of our failure to act earlier.
