For some reason the American public has forgotten that we are still at war with al-Qaida. Al-Qaida has never forgotten, and it has only one goal: to destroy America and everything we stand for.

Although it appears as though chemical weapons were used in Syria, I’ve never heard anyone ask who released the chemical weapons? Was it the Basher al-Assad, the rebels or . . . ?

The one thing that al-Qaida uses effectively to combat us is our own desire to be the world leader and to make wrongs right.

Until I know for a certainty who’s responsible for the chemical attack on the citizens of Syria, I believe we should consider the fact that al-Qaida will continue to exploit America’s vulnerabilities and use every opportunity to draw us into a military conflict that we can’t win.
