Letter: U.S. needs to stay out of Middle East


U.S. needs to stay out of Middle East

Dear Editor:

Now Obama is going to arm radical Islamists in Syria? When are we going to dispel the illusion that the world needs the U.S. as their policeman? Quit wasting our hard-earned tax dollars in countries where they’ve been killing each other in the name of Allah for thousands of years!

If our security is not directly threatened, I say let them continue killing each other. Our world is over populated. They’re helping solve that problem.

Maybe we’d do a better job of being a peacekeeper if we weren’t also the world’s largest

arms dealer.
