Dear Mr. President:
Please buy our argument and stop trying to sell us yours when it comes to the Syria chemical weapon use allegations and any obligation on the part of the United States to attack the country for first, what it did, and then in justifying our right to commit yet another international crime against a sovereign nation, cite the incident as contributing to the threats against American security.
Your claim of being in a position where you don’t have to justify yourself is hogwash, plain and simple. Of course you need to. But running from the baying Zionist hounds and deploying more American military in misadventures in the Middle East is hardly justification of anything other than intentional wrong doing, which is, obviously, wrong.
American security is not the most important issue the United States has on its plate at this time or in the past. The paramount issue is safeguarding the freedoms, rights, liberties and safety of the American people, their institutions and their principles. Citing false national security intelligence information, filtering whatever does exist to coax members of Congress to get on board, enlisting the likes of John McCain to push forward with this premeditated crime is not the purview of the chief executive of the United States.
Your job, Mr. President, is to safeguard our rights and liberties, our constitution, our people, our safety, our way of life. If our way of life is being transformed into bombing everyone we have a disagreement with or who offends our sensitivities, or who allegedly commits crimes against humanity, then you are not doing your job – not by a long shot.
You claim to be on some sort of holy crusade in the defense of innocents and to protect our national security. Your wanton ignoring of the course of history over the last several decades, a history strongly influenced, and often negatively, by Israel and Israeli interests is staggering. But even worse than this, if there could be a worse, is your total dismissal of basic American principles that we hold up to the rest of humanity to admire and emulate.
I join all others around the world, and particularly the majority of my own people in America who oppose this wrongful attack mentality. It’s as if we can’t kill enough, we can’t maim enough, we can’t have enough returned servicemen and women who are dead, cripple or suffering from vast mental illnesses that present an internal threat to our nation’s security and its social culture.
Before you continue with listening to a group of ignoramuses who are more Israel-oriented than they are American (Michael Savage recently underscored this error by saying he was first and foremost, over the interests of Jewry and Israel, an American. I implore you, as our nation’s leader, to keep this same ethic in mind and abide by it in making a final determination that attacking Syria is, as difficult as the decision was to make, unwise and inappropriate.
That is a stand you can rest assured is an accountable and honorable one.
