Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Mr. President, you were supposed to make America a beacon of light to the rest of the world. Instead, you have systematically made our international reputation even worse. We have no business being in Syria and we certainly have no business bombing anyone. If you bomb Syria, you will kill more civilians than the gas attack did. If you are using the death of innocent civilians as your battle cry for bombing Syria, then how does any of it make sense?George N Root III is a Lockport resident and an American sick of war. His column appears every Wednesday, and isn't really much of a beacon of anything for anyone. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't contact him looking for answers, because he has none.
