Senator Boxer / Senator Feinstein / Representative Thompson:
This one is pretty simple. It is a tragedy. But it doesn’t seem like our government has tried very hard to get a negotiated settlement to the civil war. Now would be a good time for us to work with Russia on this. I very much want to see that.
But even if that fails, I think that an attack on Syria will be bad. It won’t help them and it will likely only make us look worse in the region and worldwide.
Short and sweet. It doesn’t take much.
