I am planning to contact my senators and representative and demand that they not support this folly
I contacted my own, Mike Rogers and Candice Miller.
I informed all 3 of them that I don’t know or care who used chemical weapons, Its not our problem and the “responsibility to protect” is not found in our constitution.
I pointed out that not one of our wars in the mideast has resulted in anything resembling freedom or democracy and in most cases our intervention appears to have made things worse. Iraq is a disaster, Afghanistan is a disaster, Libya is a disaster, and Egypt is a disaster. I supported Iraq and Afghanistan and now admit that they were mistakes due to our idiotic idea of nation building.
Syria will not end with a few missiles chucked into the country and we all know it. What it will lead to is an ever widening war and an anti war movement that makes the Vietnam era protests look like a little pouting.
The only chance the GOP has for the future is through Reaganesque restraint in war and in spending.
