Letter: House of fools
September 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

There are no rules in war. Wars are fought between those who have power, and those who seek power. If there were rules in war they could only be enforced by military action of a more powerful military. Al-Qaida’s plan was announced by its leaders Ayman Al-Zawahiri, and Osama bin Laden years ago. That plan was, and still is to slowly take over power in other Middle East countries, and then make a final move on Israel. Our congressional representatives don’t see this because of their ignorance or the night life around Georgetown is too good to miss out on. They all deserve a B.S. degree, and I don’t mean the type you get in science, I mean the other kind.

Al-Qaida supporters sent a subtle hint of their intentions with the killing of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11 a year ago. In the end, I am sure it will come out years from now that an attack on Syria was not done for humanitarian reasons, but rather for a political one instead.
