I have fond memories of America the beautiful and the great. Our current situation reminds me of a cartoon I once saw of a little guy hurtling down a hill in a go-kart with his sinister-looking older brother standing at the top of the hill. The little kid is saying, “How’re we doing, bro?” With the impending U.S. military intervention in Syria, it’s the American people and their money, troops and faith in the go-kart.

The big brother of questionable intent, who may be getting paid to take care of his little brother, won’t suffer any injuries from the poorly executed exercise and has no sense of personal responsibility or remorse, is comfortably situated in Washington, or wherever the safe haven happens to be.

I strongly oppose the U.S. military intervention in Syria. I grieve that our “big brothers” are not invested in empires other than their own personal ones. Their America extends far beyond our shores, and they will not feel the pains of this ill-fated non-war.
