    For once I'm in agreement with religious leaders.

    Going to war is an extremely serious decision that should always be made very carefully - perhaps much more carefully than some wars have been entered into. That said, there are times when it is necessary and just. World War II was necessary - no amount of talking with Hitler would have deterred him from his crazed lust for power nor his delusions about justification for killing those he thought were enemies of his state. It should also be noted that since a civil war is already happening, the term "No more war" can't be realized if the current state of affairs continues.

    None of this means I am in favor of the U.S. getting involved in Syria. It is possible things could get much worse for the Syrian people and especially for our own brave men and women of the armed services. It is a very difficult and complicated situation. I'm simply saying there are some situations where war is justified and it doesn't appear that there is an acknowledgement of this fact in this very brief report we have on this issue.
