We are not making citizens of the USA safer by attacking another sovereign nation. At least; that's my opinion of our involvement. We are actually making the USA less safe. All we really have is another warmongering president who by his election can make war.
I think President Obama has lost his way here.
He's doing terrible damage to the Democratic Party. He's shifting the focus of poor government from the House/Senate to his own office. Liberals are disenchanted with a warmonger who continues the old Gitmo ways. It's hard to imagine one year ago: the Republicans were their own worst enemy. Hillary was clearly a frontrunner for the next election.
Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. We're seeing that now with Obama.
If, by treaty, most of the world has decided to rid their arsenals of chemical munitions. then some other part of the world can be the deciderer. How about Russia or China? Oh wait! They don't want military action. OK... Germany? Spain? Latvia? Brazil? The whole of South America?
In reality when you look around..... The United States of America is the only country actively making worldwide war. And continuing to want to make worldwide war.
