The Grandstanding of Chemical Weaponry - letter to the editor?

Title: The discussion Syria won’t spark

The U.S. administration has been grandstanding against the use of chemical weaponry against civilians as it should, however the prevention of such a violation and atrocity will not be stifled by appropriating debt in order to spank the hands of the aggressors. The potential for further civilian casualty is no less improbable by use of lethal weaponry. Destruction begets destruction. Sarin was banned from production and stockpiling in 1993 with the UN Chemical Weapons Convention, which certainly wasn’t a deterrent to its handling or use by the faction we’ve claimed liable for the attack.

Does Washington even have the moral authority to intervene in Syria?

The U.S. military was responsible for the death and injury of over a million Japanese civilians in Tokyo during WWII by the dissemination of Napalm. In 2003, the U.S. military had washed the Iraqi environment with thousands of tons of munitions, which were comprised of depleted uranium. In 1993, the FBI used tear gas on women and children of a small community of Seventh Day Adventists, known as the infamous Waco siege. Tear gas was also fired upon Occupy Protestors in Oakland, California in 2011. The U.S. military admitted to using White Phosphorus as an incendiary weapon against Iraqi insurgents in Fallujah, which was indiscriminate in its melting of women and children to death. The U.S. military sprayed close to 20 million gallons of chemicals, including Agent Orange on the forest and farms of Vietnam from 1962-1971, and we are the only regime to have ever used nuclear bombs on other human beings in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

Revision!

The U.S. administration has been grandstanding against the use of chemical weaponry against civilians as it should, however the prevention of such violations and atrocities will not be stifled by further endangering civilians’ lives by countering with lethality. Sarin was banned from production and stockpiling in 1993 with the UN Chemical Weapons Convention, which certainly wasn’t a deterrent to its handling or use by the faction we’ve claimed responsible for the attack.

The people have expressed unprecedented opposition to intervention in Syria recently. If the House votes against intervention as representative of their constituencies, then any appropriation of funds from the people for such an endeavor would nail the coffin shut on the credibility and representation of our administration. The Federal Government is printing notes to the utter impoverishment of this nation. The National Debt is approx. $16,927,745,000,000.00, which is approx. $53,466.00 per citizen and $148,131.00 per taxpayer. What legal and moral authority does Washington have to intervene in Syria?

The U.S. Government through military means has caused the death and injury of millions using such chemical weaponry as Napalm, Depleted Uranium, Tear gas, White Phosphorus, Agent Orange and not least of all is the only regime to ever use nuclear bombs on other human beings in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. What were the repercussions for using tear gas on women and children in the Waco siege of 1993; for Israel’s use of white phosphorus on Palestinian civilians in 2009 as our ally; for destroying the genetic integrity of the Iraqi population through the dissemination of munitions in Fallujah in 2003; for dumping close to 20 million gallons of chemicals, including Agent Orange on the forest and farmlands of Vietnam and surrounding countries?

Peace and Love always.
