    Not worthy of a peace prize

    I totally agree with the letters of Chris Pratt and John Snell. How can we, the U.S., even think of bombarding Syria? That Assad was the one who used the gas is not certain, and we sure wouldn’t harm him with our bombs. Besides all the political horror and consequences that become very possible with such a move, there are humans, humans who have already suffered incredibly, and now we want to bomb them to make a point to Assad? With other words: You have been gassed, now we make it all better by bombing you?

    Mr. President, can you explain how the Nobel Peace Prize fits in between the drones and the bombs?
