    Seek Iran's help with Syria
    If our goal is to get Syria to stop using chemical weapons, we should go to the Iranians for help ("Deep Democratic misgivings over Syria," Sept. 5). The Iranians are the Syrians' best allies, but they hate nerve agents, having suffered when the Iraqis...
  • Dropping bombs isn't the answer

    Dropping bombs isn't the answer
