Re "Bera not sold on airstrike in Syria" (Page A1, Sept. 6): All I keep hearing is the just cause for bombing Syria, for violating a ban on chemical weapons. The hypocrisy is mind numbing.
Agent Orange was introduced to Vietnam by our government. If that's not chemical warfare, what the hell is? Instead of killing more innocent people in Syria, let's save the money by not bombing and pay restitution to our troops, their families and the country of Vietnam and ask for forgiveness. But that will never happen due to the out-of-touch hypocrites we elected.
The next election, do not vote for any elected official who approves more killing, maiming and insanity. Please let's clean house.
