Missle response

Reader comment on item: No to Bombing Syria

As you can see, I know very little about this but I do try to read and keep up with current affairs. However, I was under the impression that one reason the Holocaust lasted the length of time that it did was because of the United States' refusal to "get involved."

When human rights are so openly and deliberately violated it seems to me that our Judeo-Christian values demand some reaction. I realize that many things like this probably happen often and we (the US citizens) do not learn of it, but when we do, I feel that some response is proper. Does the US even know who to help there?

I am sure there are many, many ways we could have responded (or not) but I do not fault the Trump administration's decision to react. I will pray that it does not leave to further desecration of human life.
