September 23, 2013 12:00 am

The United Nations was established in 1945 to promote and facilitate international laws, civil rights, human rights and world peace. All this happened after World War II after the atrocities that took place during the war.

The UN started with 51 countries and now has 193. The U.N. was formed for just this reason. Syria is killing innocent people using poison gas. The killing has been going on for over 2 1/2 years and we've done nothing. Where in the U.N. resolutions does it say we are the world's police department? The Congress and Senate need to go home and listen to the people whom they say they represent.

The answer is simple: Stay out of Syria. We have plenty of areas in United States that need assistance. Chicago, Detroit, Gary all have home grown terrorists, the only difference is they're not using car bombs. Let's take care of America first for a change.
