Oh boy, here we go again.

When will we learn that war doesn't solve some of these issues? I've often wondered what would have been different if we hadn't declared war on Japan but had said "Leave us alone, we don't want to go to war with you or anyone else."

After WWII there was Korea, Vietnam, Gulf I, Gulf II, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Syria. I'm sure I have missed a couple in there, too.

Where does it end? And why must we be the world's policeman? Is it really true that Europe won't do anything (allowing Hitler to rise to power, for example) and we must step in to see that something is done?

What about the countries we've ignored that could use our help? And why does the help always mean bloodshed and weapons of war?

Why does it seem that everyone love American Dollars but hates American People?

It is clear that the US Congress, reflecting the will of the US people doesn't want military action. It is a war we can't win and can only lose. Help the rebels and help Al Qaeda? That isn't going to work.

How many wars have we spent our blood and treasure to try to stop Muslims from killing other Muslims and what did we get for it? Their hatred and more terrorism attacks on us. I say enough is enough even though Joe Biden told us that if Bush went to war in Iraq without congressional approval, he (Biden) would move to impeach him. Now we see that Biden is all for going to war in Syria without congressional approval!
