I feel the same way I did in 1968. The president and Congress do not care about what the American people do or don't want. The majority of us do not want the United States to take action against Syria. This problem is not America's problem; it is the world's problem. The United Nations should decide what to do.
Britain, which has always been our staunchest ally, voted no because that is what the British people want. Well, the American people want the same thing. But does anyone really think what we want matters to our elected officials? Can you say Vietnam? The Syrian rebels are just as brutal as the regime they oppose. Plus, most of them are Islamic extremists, who hate us.
Finally, how can our elected officials justify wasting millions of dollars in missiles on a country that hasn't even attacked us while at the same time allowing spending cuts to programs to help the needy here at home?
