U.S. must occupy Syria

Richard Medcalf

Stonewall —

Once again, our president has shown a lack of leadership and a lack of courage and has proved to be the weakest president we’ve ever had.

There is no way a country using chemical warfare should go unpunished. It is morally wrong as well as against international policy.

No matter what Russia or the international community says, the U.S. should go into Syria and destroy Assad’s regime there by stopping the use of chemical weapons.

How would you like to see your family die in such a cruel way?

The U.S. should occupy Syria and set up a democratic government and control all assets; thus, we would be the dominant and stabilizing power in that region.
