Should we, once again take part in another Mideast civil war, this time in Syria?
Some will argue that we should back all the brave fighters who are attempting to remove a dictator and install Democracy. That surely worked well in Iraq, Egypt, and Libya, didn't it?
For thousands of years, hatred of one tribe for another, religious differences and interpretations between Sunni and Shia and their offshoots have been the everyday reality of life in that region.
Never miss a local story.
In the Revolutionary War we received aid from France, which was also a way for them to punish their adversary, England.
I don't remember any overseas help in the War of 1812; and the Civil War brought sympathy and some aid to the South from England.
It's time to step back from these fruitless encounters and step up to the plate for our own citizens.
