On Syria, Obama team makes world safer


President Obama threatens Syria with a missile strike because of its indefensible use of chemical weapons.

Secretary of State John Kerry rhetorically says if Syria hands over its weapons it can avoid this missile attack. Syria actually considers this with the help of Russia’s poor excuse for a dictator Vladimir Putin as the negotiator.

Now the far right believes that this pending relinquishment of said chemical weapons has tarnished Pres. Obama’s and America’s reputation. Seems to me that just the opposite has occurred, and the right wing would rather have these weapons put in even more dangerous hands, than to actually give credit to the Obama administration for stepping up to the plate and making things just a little bit safer for all the world.

  • Declare war on ISIS

    The ISIS army, along with the other Islamic militants, have declared war on us by killing our citizens and threatening to kill more.

  • Too much coverage

    With 24-hour coverage of a St. Louis suburb and the shooting of a resident by police, we must get another 24-hour news channel. The Middle East is exploding. American citizens are at risk from brutal terrorists.

  • Black leadership void

    According to the interviews I have seen on television, Ferguson is 70 percent black and has no black elected officials. There are only three black officers in the 60-member police force.
