Some we have helped in past have turned on us

No one likes to see people abused or murdered in cold blood. Syria is in the middle of a civil war, and force is being used against its own people. Our government would do the same here if we as a people decided that our government is no longer representing us. However, I would pray that they would not resort to wholesale killing of our people using poison gas.

That said, I still cannot support the United States getting involved in Syria even though their government is using poison gas. We are not the policemen of the world. We jump in to help people in other parts of the world, paying for it with not only dollars but with the blood of our children only to be attacked by the same people we tried to help. Our men and women lay buried all over this world because they tried to help others, but we are still hated by these same people and attacked in our own country. No, let us mind our own business.
