Letter: Support Obama’s Call for Action

To the Editor:

The use of chemical weapons is different from the use of conventional weapons. Syria is not just another Mideast war. One of the worst crimes has happened.

No one will act if we don’t, because no other country has the ability or the will. It’s in our national interest to punish anyone using chemical weapons, because terrorists can bring them to our country. Unpunished use anywhere makes another use more “thinkable” and lowers the bar for terrorists everywhere.

President Obama was right to recognize a red line. Write to your representatives in Congress and ask them to support Obama’s plan.
