On Friday, President Obama said the U.S. may sometimes have to police the world. Mr. President, I respectfully beg to differ.

Where did this notion come from, that the USA, being the last superpower standing, should be the police force of the world? That we should zoom from continent to continent, fighting crime and bringing bad guys to justice? By what authority?
Right about now would be a good time for Barack Obama to change his mind about attacking Syria.
Today would be a good day for the president and the people of America to make a decision for peace.
Use of chemical weapons in Syria was evil and inhumane. Use of chemical weapons resulted in human death and suffering.
To respond by missile attacks against Syria would result in more human death and suffering. Where is the logic?
President Barack Obama will be pilloried if he chooses peace and not war. But good leaders must make the right decision without regard for the political consequences.
