Obama should go to the UN himself

To the editor:

Why isn’t the options for President Obama to take in the crisis in Syria include going to the U.N. himself and asking his fellow members to vote to find and seize all the chemical weapons in a peaceful manner? I know that Syria will have to vote to allow this, but since Russian President Putin still maintains Assad did not use these chemical weapons, this vote will put added pressure for Assad to do the right thing and vote to release these weapons to the U.N. assembly.

In any case, if the U.S. wants to remain a creditable member of the U.N. in everyone’s eyes, what harm will it do if our president reverses his stance again and takes a more Christian, peaceful avenue with this idea instead of taking the risk of killing more of our innocent brothers and sisters again in another country that will only bring about more violence and hate for America. Let’s not forget the bombs given to and used by Saddam Hussein, who was our so-called buddy in Iraq then, to kill hundreds and thousands of innocent Iranians and Muslins came from America. Small wonder why we had the bombings in Boston.
