If Syria is a world problem, as Obama says it is, why is the U.S. intent on going it alone to attack Syria (“Locals weigh in on Syria crisis,” Sept. 4)? And what is the purpose of an American pre-emptive strike? Syria hasn’t attacked this country. Why not let the rest of the world handle this one?

Saudi Arabia wants to pay oil dollars for a U.S. police action. They pay us as if we’re security guards.

For all the money it will take for cruise and tomahawk missiles  alone, couldn’t Detroit use that money to rebuild with jobs, transportation and infrastructure support?
