  • Street-corner protesters dread yet another war [Commentary]

    At 7 p.m. on Sept. 9, June Martyn turned on her portable stereo at the corner of Columbia's Little Patuxent and Broken Land parkways, and let the sounds from "Waging Peace for Children and Other Living Things," a CD Martyn created with Howard County...
  • U.S. must respond to Syria's chemical weapons

     U.S. must respond to Syria's chemical weapons
    While many would argue that there are no rules in war, I feel that a terrible line was crossed with the use of poison gas munitions by the government of Syria on its own civilians. Such wide-scale barbarism demands a U.S. military response, regardless...
  • Fighting words from Vladimir Putin

    While the slaughter goes on in the Syrian civil war, a remarkable war of words has broken out over the threatened use of American force there, led by of all people Russian President Vladimir Putin. Moscow's strongman of the post-Cold War era, or at least...
  • A shaky but promising deal on Syria

    A shaky but promising deal on Syria
    United Nations inspectors aren't saying who launched the chemical weapons attack that killed 1,400 people in Syria in August, but it would be difficult for anyone — including President Bashar Assad's apologists in Moscow — to maintain the...
  • Putin's dubious offer

    Putin's dubious offer
    There is every reason to doubt the seriousness of the proposal by Russia — quickly seconded by Syria — to turn over the Middle Eastern nation's chemical weapons stockpile to the international community for destruction as a way to avert...
  • Putin is the world's most hypocritical leader

    Vladimir Putin may be the world's most hypocritical leader. The debate over the Syrian chemical weapons attack has brought this into sharp focus. The Russian president has repeatedly called the idea that the Syrian government carried out the attack...
  • The decisive moment

    The decisive moment
    This week, Maryland's congressional delegation will be called on to vote on a matter of the gravest national importance: President Barack Obama has asked lawmakers to authorize punishing military strikes against Syria in response to that government's...
  • What do the Syrians want?

    What do the Syrians want?
    It was a hot day in Reyhanli, a small town on the Turkish-Syrian border. "Tell Obama we don't want him to intervene," a Syrian woman yelled to me in Arabic. "We do not want to be another Iraq!" She was half joking, but her 19-year old daughter added on...
  • Why must U.S. attack Syria?

    Why must U.S. attack Syria?
    If I truly believed Syria's Bashar Assad used Sarin gas to kill his people, I'd be outraged ("Where is the outrage?" Sept. 4). However, after watching much of Tuesday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, I'm troubled by the overuse of the term,...
  • Unlike Iraq, Syria decision will be fact-based

    Unlike Iraq, Syria decision will be fact-based
    Gail Householder seems quite irritated at David Zurawik asserting that George W. Bush and Richard Cheney lied and made up Iraq mass destruction weapons ("'Phony' scandals Aug 28). I must praise him for being correct and as smart as Secretary of State...
  • Sun beats the drums of war

    Sun beats the drums of war
    Thanks to The Sun I now know what it may have been to read the paper in 1898 prior to the Spanish American War ("Punishing Syria," Aug. 27). Your editorial was all that yellow journalism could be, waving the bloody flag, citing massacres that no one could...
  • Syria: Where is the outrage?

    Syria: Where is the outrage?
    More than 1,400 people dead, 400 of them children, from rocket attacks spreading a chemical agent, most likely sarin, on civilians living outside Damascus. Those gruesome deaths ought to be the focus of U.S. and world attention — people suffering,...
