Last thing nation needs is another Mideast war

This letter is in response to the gentleman from Cheektowaga who views President Obama as a coward for his stance on Syria. There is a difference between being a coward and aiming before you shoot.

The neo-cons from the previous administration, with whom the writer apparently agrees, got us into an unnecessary war that cost thousands of lives and helped put this country into a recession. The major beneficiaries of the Iraq War were Iran and Halliburton.

The writer and other neo-cons like to sit back, thump their chests and tell us how tough they are by sending other people’s kids off to die.
