Editor,

Is it just me or did Donald Trump swear up and down during the election that he would not militarily escalate the U.S. presence in Syria? In fact, if I remember the debates correctly, he took more than one pot shot at Hillary Clinton for supporting unnecessary wars in the Middle East that, at the end of the day, did not benefit the people of the United States.

While there is still not yet concrete proof that the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its own people, the Trump administration has literally decided to shoot first and ask questions later.



I would recommend that Trump supporters who are tired of unnecessary wars in the Middle East take these days to do a little bit of soul searching. The fact of the matter is that the candidate that you, Mr. or Mrs. Trump Supporter, voted into the White House has now completely betrayed what was originally supposed to be an isolationist or “America first” foreign policy. The fact is that a full-scale invasion of Syria would probably lead to a hot war between a nuclear-armed Russia and a nuclear-armed United States. If President Toupee takes the nation into WWIII then all I can say is, “God help us!”
