Editor, Index-Tribune:

We have no legal standing to be attacking Syria. If we attack without a declaration of war, we will be committing war crimes.

We should have learned from Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt and Libya that even if we help these people it doesn’t turn out well and they still hate us.

I am surprised that there have been no editorial statements regarding this.
