U.S. shouldn't meddle in Syria

I have a great suggestion about what to do with Syria: Let's mind our own business ("A despot lashes out," Aug. 11).

It's about time America stopped spending trillions of dollars policing the planet. As far as Syria's Bashar Assad is concerned, let those in the region deal with him.

This unpleasantness is half a planet away from us. The United States is engaged in three wars already (Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya), so why add Syria? I pay taxes and want the money here, not tossed down those rat holes. Enough!
