To the Editor:

Syria and the federal buffoons involved in wanting to get U.S. involved there remind me of earlier imbeciles in the G.W. Bush-43 administration’s fiasco of contrived involvement by U.S. in Iraq.

What a wonderful fantasy Iraq has been for planting the seed of democracy.

From this veteran, constituent, voter, taxpayer — stay the hell OUT of Syria!

Our national interests are not in a sovereign civil war of a third-rate country, unless payoffs need be made in political season and drama and/or made to the U.S. “military/industrial” defense of corporations through war.

Four thousand-plus dead and countless maimed/wounded of our young military can attest to the bogus use of “government intelligence” (oxymoron) in Iraq to further what ...?

A congressional rubber stamp of Obama’s adventures to produce an Obama/Kerry “legacy” makes any for vote a part of a failed, futile, bogus manipulation of American “interests.”
