Letter to the Mason City Globe Gazette:
All the discussion in the Syria debate centers around who used chemical weapons. The real issue is whether it is our business.
Syria is not our business any more than Korea, Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan. Rather than playing God, doing the impossible, the president should command our soldiers to defend the United States instead.
It is a free country, however and if the president (who was once the peace candidate) and his family wish to help Al-Qaeda and the other Syrian rebels, I, for one would be glad to buy them a plane ticket.
