I recently read a small response to Syria's use of poison gas. What did we do during the Vietnam War? Remember? Agent Orange!

We still have our veterans and their children suffering the side effects with little or no help from our government. Also, what about the innocent Vietnamese adults and children exposed to Agent Orange by our government?

Take care of our vets instead of starting another conflict. We don't need it!

Maybe the United Nations should confiscate our gasses as well as Syria's. Ask a veteran or a child about Agent Orange. People sure do forget fast.
