Temporary line
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

A line in the sand is temporary; it is not carved in rock; it is not permanent. Time has eroded the line, but its purpose has been realized: to make the point we do not approve of chemical weapons.

U.S. citizens are not at risk in Syria; energy independence at home is ours to choose.

Syria is an issue that needs to be resolved by a global consensus; not by a bully with a stick. Barbaric responses to barbaric actions will not lead to world peace, nor peace in the Middle East.
