To the Editor:

Why President Trump decided to add to the war chaos in Syria is beyond common sense.

I would think if he had done what Israel is planning on doing he would have helped a lot more.

Just setting up no-fly zones and putting up tents, food, water and medical care for people would be a life-saving and smart thing to do.

Schools for the children would also help. Even the Russians would not allow those places to be bombed.

Instead, we spent over $70 million on 59 missiles that put the Syrian airbase out of service just 24 hours.

It costs taxpayers $3 million for every weekend the president spends in Florida as a separate aircraft flies him from Washington, D.C., and his wife from New York to Florida plus all the Secret Service details.

At least Israel is helping by taking in Syrian orphans. See:http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-israel-syria-orphans-20170126-story.html.

So you support the gassing of civilians? You post a link to the LA Times. Yeah setting up tents will stop a gas attack?

Puleeeezeeeee! What an orgy of buffoonery what about Obama’s trips to Hawaii and his castration of American capitalism? We wouldn’t have this mess today if Obama had done his job. Also what about the rules of engagement that Obama put on our military that handcuffs them.
