To the Editor: What happened to President Obama's plan over two months ago to supply Syria rebels with arms so they could defend themselves from Syria's President Bashar Assad troops? There's been no news anywhere that has mentioned it since. I think most people would back that plan.
So now Assad thinks he can do anything, such as chemical weapons on his own people. How terrible. What kind of person is he?
Now, it is looking like we are going to get involved in another war, even though all our troops are not out of Iraq and Afghanistan. I think we should have supplied the rebels with weapons, and maybe shot some drones and or missiles, but, lets face it the United States people are stretched thin with the economy.
We cannot police the whole world, other countries need to step up. Afghanistan is still saying their own soldiers aren't trained yet... How long does it take to train their them?
I don't think we should go into any country to help them out if their own people don't stand beside us. I also don't think that we should hand any money to their dictator. The more millions and billions we give other countries the more they want.
Something has to change.
