Monday letters: Syria is like a wasp nest

September 9, 2013 

If President Obama attacks or invades Syria, it will only add to his long list of mistakes.

Why would we help or even worry about a civil war in a country where all sides are our enemies? Even the women — and later the children — will hate us and become our enemies.

It would be like kicking a wasp nest just for the heck of it. We will be stung by all.

If the president wants to spend hundreds of millions of dollars, he should give that money to the Veterans Administration; we veterans need our country’s help.
