Letter: U.N. should be pressured to deal with Syria

September 9, 2013 

Syria is a world problem, not the United States' problem

The possible use of gas on Syrians is a world recognized crime and those responsible need to be brought to justice. This is a process that needs the immediate attention of world organizations, including world courts.

If we rush in and bomb Syria, are we any better than those who are already there bombing and killing each other? The United States, along with all other nations outraged by this gassing, needs to support and pressure the United Nations to thoroughly investigate and take action as needed to punish those responsible.
