Re "Heated debate at Syria hearing" (Page A1, Sept. 4): A war against Syria is a war against America. The wars on Iraq and Afghanistan have reduced the influence and finances of every American. There is no conclusive evidence to charge the Syrian government with using chemical weapons, but here we go again. Remember Iraq with weapons of mass destruction.
Secretary of State John Kerry is loud and rude. Can anyone guess who will run for president next? Write to your congressional representatives now and let them know what you think of a war (even a limited? strike) on Syria. The consequences are huge.
