We always have money for war

Letter to the Editor

What I find amazing is that whenever the Government wants to get involved in a war no one asks the question, “How are we going to pay for it?” There’s always an unlimited budget when it comes to going to war. We don’t even bother to try to figure out if we are on the right side. For example in Egypt we helped overthrow the government just to elect the Muslim Brotherhood which turned out to be worse than their former dictator. We invaded Iraq for no reason at all. And we’re in the middle of Afghanistan where both sides are the bad guys and bin Laden was in Pakistan.

Now Obama wants to get involved in Syria because nerve gas is being used. And we’re going to go in and overthrow the government and give it to who? Do we really need yet another war just for the sake of looking like we’re involved? Maybe we need to take the time to think things through this time rather than do something just for the sake of looking tough.
