Evil men will endure if good people do nothing

LaceySeptember 16, 2013 

The US must hit Syria hard enough to cause President Assad to think twice about again using nerve gas to kill innocent civilians. Has America become so insensitive to deliberate killing of women and children that we cannot feel and act on this moral outrage? I hope not!

There are rules in war and those who would violate an accepted international norm against the use of chemical weapons must be held accountable. President Obama has accepted his responsibility as a world leader to try to stop any further slaughter of Syrians even though the US is not immediately threatened. We as concerned citizens must support our president or we will forfeit our right to call ourselves a Christian nation.

We should know that all it takes for evil to endure is for good people to do nothing.
