The Case for Remaining out of Syria

This video was prepared in early September 2013, as our national government proceeded to present its case for initiating a war with Syria.  My views in opposition to such a war are stated.

I am, as a veteran of combat, tired – no, actually exhausted – from our politicians of both major political parties waging war around the world during most of my life with virtually nothing to show for all the waste in lives lost and forever changed, and dollars squandered, driving our nation yet deeper into debt.  It was not enough to lose friends and acquaintances who served our nation while a young man, and to lose more in military service over the subsequent years. Today, and over the last decade, I have now begun to watch as friends and acquaintances of our children die and return wounded, with so many changed forever.
