The government of the USA has more than enough matters domestically that requires attention and/or funds to either create or improve so why not focus on those? Why spend dollars and other resources for a civil war in Syria, especially when your choice to back is the group that has blatantly and repeatedly pledged its allegiance to Al Qaida? Why continue funneling dollars (aka support) to nations that are hostile to either our country and/or way of life (see Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc.) Why aren’t our so-called leaders making wise and sensible decisions? This really is a no-brainer. Focus domestically! Our infrastructure is in bad shape and that is an understatement. For example:
- the electric grid for our nation is outdated
- many bridges and roads have not been updated/repaired/serviced
- cellular and broadband access shouldn’t have dark spots
- even irrigation improvements for farms and parks needs to be evaluated.
I am sure there are many more matters I am missing.
As far as political mines we have border security, making us oil-independent, alternative energy needs – surely you see the point. FOCUS DOMESTICALLY.
I am not one who supports the idea of a UN — BUT — since it is there, don’t you think the matters in Syria should fall in their lap? If they are having a civil war – it happens. In civil wars, people die and eventually one is left standing and they rule the country. This is a matter for the UN and border nations. We have no business with Syria, so why are we going to meddle? Whatever side we pick we are allies with people who are aligned with terrorist organizations.
