Letter to the editor

Senator John McCain’s response to the Syria question He said yesterday, “We have to make it clear that a vote against this would be catastrophic in its consequences”. What he means is that if we don’t strike Syria militarily, that the world would no longer respect nor fear America’s military might. Wouldn’t it be nice if the world respected us because of our values and efforts to promote democracy, freedom and improved living standards around the globe instead of living in fear of being attacked by us? Ever since Bush’s attack on Iraq we have been losing respect everywhere. Obama has not reduced our belligerent agenda. He has expanded it in Afghanistan and Libya. One last thought, should he attack Syria I believe he should be ordered to return the Nobel Peace prize. It was given to him in the hope that he was a man of peace. It didn’t work. Jack B.
