No one wants to attack Syria

Published 9:24 am Monday, September 9, 2013

It now seems almost inevitable that our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president seems poised to rain down more death upon the people of Syria. This, in spite of opposition from nearly the entire world, most of America, Congress and the Pope.

Haven’t we been down this road before? Will launching yet another attack on a Muslim country make them or us safer? Have we not learned one lesson from the debacles in Vietnam, Iraq, Libya or our involvement in Egypt?

As I see it, the president irresponsibly drew a line in the sand which Assad, we are now told, has crossed. So to save face, we must become militarily involved. My question is why Syria? There must be at least a dozen or more countries in the world where evil dictators are doing bad or worse to their people. Where is the outrage for them? Where is the U.S. military involvement on their behalf? Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

I believe it is way past time that we collectively pray and fast to end the madness of war and abortion. Know Jesus, know peace. No Jesus, no peace.
