Letter: Why, why, why

September 8, 2013 

Why we are spending more than $1 billion a year on the United Nations, yet they fail to act when a country violates international law?

Why are we unilaterally going to war to defend people who want us dead?

Why would a president throw out a bluff only to have it called? And then tuck his tail and go to Congress?

Why are Russia and the United States always on opposite sides yet we both have to deal with Muslim extremists?

Why, when some Muslims do something evil, everyone says it's just a few Muslim extremists and all others should be applauded, but if a wacko uses a gun it's the 80 million gun owners fault? Or even more ridiculous, the gun's fault?

All I can say is, "Ask your mother."
