To Mr. Hatch,
The classic definition of insanity is to repeat an action over and over expecting different results and that is exactly what President Obama is doing now in Syria. We have learned a hard lesson in our misadventures in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya that have resulted in the deaths of thousands of our servicemen. Lets not drag ourselves into another endless quagmire at the cost of our countrymen’s lives and our nation’s fortune.
Now we are poised to make the same mistake with the real possibility for much more dire consequences if we strike Syria. Given the geopolitical situation and regional treaties, this could very well be the event that initiates WWIII, in the same way a flashpoint initiated WWI but with greater potential for widespread destruction and mass casualties on the US mainland.
Obama wants to "Punish" Assad for an event he cannot even provide concrete evidence for. How much American and Syrian civilian blood must be spilled on the account of mere conjecture and possibly outright lies?
I do not know what or whose agenda Obama is fulfilling but as a Senator of the Great State of Utah, I trust you will put OUR interests first and vote to stay out of this utterly foolish, wasteful and potentially disastrous conflict.
We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
