It is unbelievable that our national leaders are so politically motivated and lacking the good judgment they should have regarding the Syrian revolution.

Why are they arguing whether we should attack Syria and bring more sorrow and suffering to an already devastated people? Our missiles surely will kill countless soldiers and innocent people because somebody used banned chemical weapons.

Just think what could be done with the hundreds of millions of dollars cost for the missile attack. We could use it for humanitarian aid for the thousands suffering both within Syrian borders and without. We could use it to promote peace and goodwill. But no, this would appear to be counter to the sordid and evil intentions of the Obama regime.

If the American people don’t act now, I fear for us, our children and our grandchildren.
