Public ignored in talk about Syria
What I find most disturbing in discussions about bombing Syria is how much the concerns and advice from the public is being ignored.The media is being very one-sided in presenting the views of the president and Congress, while only giving lip service to the views and concerns of the public most of whom are against the U.S. getting involved in yet another conflict.
I was totally against Bush's war on Iraq even going so far as to put an ad in the Bellevue Reporter voicing by objections. As time has shown, I was more right about the situations than the media and politicians who started an unnecessary conflict for which we and the people of Iraq are still paying for them in blood and we in tax dollars. Those dollars should be going to resolve problems in our own country.
Why are the powers to be in this country so obsessed with getting involved in the affairs of other countries while not dealing with our problems is what we all should be asking?
