Letter: In Support Of Graham, Syrian Intervention
Dear Editor: There is no feeling like the warmth of democracy. Democracy must be protected from the cold hearted. Democracy must be promulgated throughout the world even its darkest days. Democracy must be maintained without complacency in our most comforting hours. Democracy should be spread without burning rhetoric that leaves a scar on the mental rolodex of voters.
Therefore, the privilege of democracy does not need to be held from the Syrian people or any other country around the world. We need people who are equipped for all seasons as President Ronald Reagan once said. We need human beings who care for others when others are wrongfully hurt. We need citizens who take notice of law and order rather than allowing lawbreakers to be free.
The Syrian government has allegedly broken international law by using chemical weapons on its own citizens. Also, the Syrian Government is harboring terrorist-like organizations such as Hezbollah and Al Qaeda. Those two reasons are very significant for why we must enter Syria.
If Syria becomes even more overwhelmed with civil unrest and economic nuisances Syria could very well become more corrupt. Even corrupt enough to start producing terrorists over lands that are larger than some American states.
The problem with Syria being in total disarray is that it is the center of the African Arab World. If they are able to become a breeding ground for unruly people that perform horrific acts they can target United States Armed Forces establishments and other countries that do not agree with them in the African Arab World.
Consequently, this could hurt our economic and financial interests in the area. That is the majority of the world’s oil reserves being there and other natural resources we need across the world. The regime of Bashar al-Assad must be committed to reform overseen by our international allies or be toppled. Sending our military forces into Syria takes reasoned and calculated approaches. However, this is what our men and women of the armed forces signed up for. They didn’t just sign up for peacetime they signed up to answer to the call of duty.
Each life is valuable and I am sure the United States and our allies will do whatever it takes to protect it. Yet, we must not allow this event to turn into another U.S.S. Cole, Afghanistan, or even Libya.
Thankfully, one leader understands all the concerns faced by the American people and our allies that is my senator, Lindsey Graham. Graham has continuously fought for our citizens, all of the laws we abide by, and most of all freedom. Still, we must respect those leaders who would like America to overlook this situation and disregard their possible aloofness to the fullness of this foreign crisis. As a result in crisis we must look to the rules and proper reasons to command our actions to make the world a better place.
Disagree with you … but thanks for sharing.
