Letter: Syria a no-win situation


letters_flatTo the editor,

We are presently faced with a no-win situation with Syria. They reportedly have immense supplies of poisonous gas. And I have one simple question. Where was the U.N. or any other group concerned with world security? 

I understand that the same WWI agreement that made the use of gas illegal also applied to its manufacture.  Even if Syria did not sign such an agreement should that have excused them from being monitored? When did we first learn of the huge amount accumulated? I doubt that it all was made over a weekend.

Someone must have been asleep at the switch. And this includes our N.S.A.
