I’ve written to the White House and my congressional representatives expressing my opinion. It is my opinion you do not save face and credibility by killing people or destroying their property.
Pres. Obama put his foot in his mouth by announcing “Assad has to go!

Mr. President: your
mouth. Enough said.
