America has to stop trying to police world

There seems to be a great many people wanting to bomb Syria, use drones and invade the country. I am dead set against any and all attacks. It is way past time to stop thinking we are the policeman of the world.

It is time to totally pull out of the Middle East. All we are doing is to increase the hatred of the United States. If we would pass laws to support hybrid automobiles and trucks, we would not require oil from that area of the world.

Let Egypt and the Saudis take care of the Syrian government and their army. Let’s not give the radicals one more reason to hate us.

And, it is many decades past time to pull out of South Korea. What 30,000 troops are going to do against a million or so North Korean troops is open for question.
