Thoughts on Syria conflict, Obama

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — Millions have fled Syria as the civil war , which is said to have killed 100,000 and practically destroyed the country’s infrastructure, rages. Because some 1,200 of the latest deaths resulted from the use of a weapon we do not approve of, our president says it is the duty of the U.S. to launch a strike that will cause more deaths and destruction.

The general thought is that Congress will approve this, in spite of the fact that polls indicate the vast majority of Americans don’t want it.

No wonder we are looking for intelligent life in outer space.
