Letter: It's not isolationist to steer clear of Syria
The U.S. supported chemical warfare between Iraq and Iran by providing information on troop movements not too many decades ago.
With terrorist Islamic groups supporting the rebels and the Syrian government, during this civil war, Mr. Obama risks Mideast retaliation if he bombs Syria armaments with aircraft and cruise missiles.
Surely we should have learned by now from involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, that the terrorists will regain the country upon departure of U.S. forces. Religious wars have been the Mideast norm for multiple centuries and the U.S. should be minimally involved. It is impossible to attack one terrorist group in Syria without benefiting another terrorist group. It isn't isolationist but common sense to oppose Obama's Syria attack proposal.
