A comment and two replies

Regarding an article “Obama’s war on ISIL could reach beyond Iraq into Syria.”


Here are three of over three thousand comments that basically say the same thing. United States citizens know what they want. Is anyone in our government listening?

I see no reason for us to waste any more lives, money, or time on this region. It hasn’t made our country safer by having a war in both Iraq and Afghanistan, in fact most would argue it has made these countries MORE unstable and further anti-American. It hasn’t made us any wealthier or gas prices cheaper. And in the end we lost as many or more soldiers and other Americans as we did on 911. We have literally spent TRILLIONS on this and have lost lives and accomplished nothing. Time to call it a day and move on.

Exactly. You can’t tell me you can’t track direct threats somehow? We are the most informed and powerful nation in the world. Sometimes you have to use brawn but this time it’s about brains. We have two giant oceans and the best Navy and Air force that has ever existed. It’s time to defend home first. War in the middle east will always exist. You can’t be the most powerful country in the world when your citizens are powerless.

the only thing that was accomplished was that the military industrial complex and the politicians in washington got rich.

About LeilaPiazza

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. I am a also a yoga teacher and freelance writer. I recently described myself in a job pitch as "a person who's lived in Portland, Oregon for over 20 years with a passion for writing and a passion for all things Portland. I'm a foodie, knitter, wine and beer lover, bee-keeper (yep, I said it), mead and fruit-liqueur maker, organic gardener, home-canner, hiker, biker, runner, and occasional skinny-dipper. I’ve camped all over the state, I sail a sailboat that’s moored on the Columbia (o.k., I'm the first mate), and I spend a large percentage of my time at our beach house in Seaside." That about sums it up.
