No war with Syria

I can't for the life of me see why we have people that want this nation to start a war with Syria. It makes more sense to me that we try and let other people fight their own wars.

Nobody knows, but the U.S. taking a strike against Syria could cause a third world war. We all know the Jews are hated by most of the nations in the Middle East. They are looking for an excuse to jump on Israel.

We have foolish military men advising our president to shoot missiles into Syria. If we jump the gun and find out that the chemicals that killed those people came from another source rather than the Syrian government, it will be a terrible mistake on the part of this nation. Guided missiles don't just kill the enemy, they also kill innocent people.

With the way things seem to be headed in this nation, it would be very foolish to get into another war. Reports show that this nation is spending $200 million an hour, of which we don't have the gold to back it up.

China owns America, and most of the clothes and things people purchase were made in China. We don't see too many things that were made in America. However, the battle of Armageddon will be fought in the Middle East, and it can happen by foolish leaders being deceived.
