Letter: No action on Syria immoral, dishonorable

September 6, 2013 

For those of you who are tired of war, I’d say we haven’t been at war since WW II ended in 1945. We don’t dodge bullets, seek refuge in cellars, walk around craters, ration gas, nor eat oleomargarine rather than butter.

What we’re really tired of is political incorrectness, the loss of human life and treasure — much of which has been in vain.

Obama in this instance is politically correct, however. Indiscriminate gassing of women and children, contrary to international law, is a heinous act that as a nation we must stand up to and punish. To do nothing is not only immoral, its also dishonorable.

— Richard J. Hensel
