It would be interesting to ask mr Michael Abranowitz if he would be willing to pay an excess tax to support military action in the middle east or would he just like to finance it by borrowing from the Chinese for other generations to pay for it?

I believe if we have to borrow money to pay for these military adventures then perhaps we ought not to do it. Am I wrong?

Realistic there are just two many corrupt governments and despots in the world for the United States to fix them all.

If we are unable to fund adequately our schools, healthcare, retirement, and our roads and bridges maybe we ought not to be the worlds policeman?

We only get 10% of our imported oil from the middle east, let someone else sort out their problems.

I am tired of flushing money down that area.

Cut all aid to both Israel and Egypt until we do not have to borrow it to give it away.

I understand the people that have seen the evidence in Syria want to do something about it. But is the US really the ONLY country capable of taking care of it? Can we for ONCE sit back and watch England or Canada take care of a world policing problem? Or anyone else.

I believe in a Universal Family, and for that reason I believe, all of God's Children deserve to be Free, but this area has been at war for centuries, and the Truth is a stranger to all parties, on both sides.

It is my belief it is not about chemical weapons or Syria.

It is about Iran and the US wanting to do away with one of Irans allies.
