Keep our military men and women out of Syria

Now our government is thinking about intervening in Syria. What big business is going on there? Oil? When the civil wars were going on in Eastern Europe and Africa, did we intervene? No. And there were hundreds of thousands of people mutilated and killed. There were no big money interests there. That's why.

Who said we have to be the police for the world? Wars have been going on in the Middle East for centuries. But we intervene in the last 20 years because of big money interests.

Why should we send our patriotic men and women of the military there to be mentally and physically wounded or killed? Have the big money interests send their own armies in. They can afford it. It's about time all of us Americans say enough is enough. No more wars for oil and big money interests. Keep our military home.

Do you think the Lake County Solid Waste Management District should pay its new director less than its former director?
