Dear Editor:

I feel quite troubled with President Obama’s decision to go to Congress over Syria’s blatant attacks upon its own people with sarin nerve agent. There is a genocide going on in Syria, where 100,000 have died and seven million people have left the country. Our commander in chief is wasting time, as more will be killed.

If we don’t do something now, other countries will use chemical weapons, knowing that world leaders will do nothing. Secretary of State John Kerry has compared Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein. There is no question about that. His government killed 1,500 civilians recently with sarin gas, over 400 of them children. Meanwhile the United Nations and many of our world leaders do not want to get involved.

Remember this: Evil thrives when good people do nothing.
