Find a peaceful solution

By Thomas Stevenson - San Luis Obispo

I find it ironic that the only thing the Republican Party can agree on with Obama is a military attack on Syria. Since we’re the leader in the world, I expect our country, with all its resources and wisdom, to come up with a better solution than killing. After all, doesn’t killing to avenge killing just create more dead people?

I’m angry at both political parties in our response to Syria. Certainly, something must be done, but using weapons to force peace is an equation that has never added up. So I’m asking our leaders to show real leadership, to dig deeper, and take more time if necessary, to find a solution and response that truly reflects our country’s peaceful intent.
