Re "Obama`s tough task: Get Americans to care about chemical weapons use" (Tribune, Sept. 12):
The title and text miss the point.
During the past 30 months, over 100,000 Syrians have been killed in a war between tribal factions. None of their rulers likes anything about the West except for our dollars and weapons. We are now worried about the method used to kill 1,400 people (1.4 percent of the dead).
President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are threatening to send cruise missiles to kill even more Syrians.
They seem to be doing enough of that by themselves, without our help.
