To the Editor:
”When will they ever learn?” asks the old the song. Two of the things I have learned in my 89 years are “violence begets violence” and presidents can make mistakes.
Thousands of lives have been lost in Afghanistan and Iraq. The trillions of dollars spent there could have helped the people here who are in desperate need. Yes, we are appalled by the use o chemical weapons in Syria, but why should we, as the only nation to use weapons of mass destruction in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, become judge, jury and prosecutor in Syria?
When will we ever learn?
