Wrong Tree, Wrong Foe


The U.S. is barking up the wrong tree in Syria. Why are we not trying to get the Muslim terrorists who are fighting in Syria to stop fighting? Then maybe Assad will stop killing them. They started the fighting; Assad did not. Assad is defending the homeland from the radical Muslims who are killing other Muslims and Christians and Jews.

Can’t the U.S. negotiate a cease-fire with the Muslims? And go from there?
