Letter: Stay out of Syria war

EDITOR: The Syrian civil war problem should be solved by the United Nations, not the United States. That is why we have the U.N.

The U.S. should not be the policeman of the world. We should only get involved if the U.N. asks us to be part of a world coalitin to solve the problem. Remember, this is a civil war and not a nation against nation war.

We have to be absolutely sure it was the Syrian government that used chemical weapons against the civilian population.

President Barack Obama says Syria crossed his "red line." If he eventually orders the military strikes against the Syrian government without the OK of the U.N., would not that be an act of war? Who would blame Syria if it ordered its troops to respond by attacking American ships and planes in response to our action? Syria might declare war on the U.S. to draw us into a ground force war. How many more lives and arms and legs would we lose there, like we have in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Let's just stay out and let the people of Syria solve their own problems. Use these soldiers to guard our own borders against illegal immigrants.

Gene F. Mancel,
