Letter: Kelowna peace group plans rally against US military intervention in Syrian

So, people of Kelowna, how do you feel about these things being done in your name?

To the editor:

I really have a hard time grasping the level of insanity running around Washington these days.

Do they really want to create an even worse situation in Syria? Has nothing been learned from Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Viet Nam, etc.?

At least we know the US government believes in recycling. All the propaganda from the Iraq fiasco is being re-used.

But hey, they finally found the chemical weapons—in Syria.

So let’s get them $3 million a piece Tomahawk missiles ready.

And of course Foreign Minister Baird, says the Canadian government fully supports our good US buddy.

But a majority of US and Canadian citizens do not support their governments in this obviously illegal, totally immoral and very dangerous attack.

So, people of Kelowna, how do you feel about these things being done in your name?

Will you join the Kelowna Peace Group on Saturday noon a the intersection of Hwy. 97 and Gordon to make your voices heard?

Mark Haley,


Kelowna Peace Group
