What ever happened to the United Nations? In Libya we supported NATO which is a WWII and cold war mutual defense against communism group. The key players were former colonial imperialist powers, France and England. Now we are again consulting these powers and also former Belgium Congo imperialist Belgium to solve the Syrian civil war. This writer believes absolutely no USA troops on the ground, air or sea should be involved in the Syrian civil war. Please remember the numbers of people killed by France in Algeria and Vietnam when they were trying to keep their colonial regimes. Remember, how many natives were killed by King Leopold of Belgiuim when he controlled that African country. And the British Empire? Wasn’t it the British who insisted they had proof of Sadam’s Weapons of Mass destruction? Obama is right to be very cautious in accepting the often duplicitous “intelligence” of these former Colonial Imperialist Tyrants. No USA military intervention in Syria. Take it to the United Nations.
