Letter: Obama, Syria editorial right on

The Forum editorial (Sept. 12) hit it just right about Syria and the politics surrounding President Barack Obama’s speech and policy.

Limited military strikes or war have the same consequence – people die; money is burned. Whenever there is a chance of peace, even in the face of the Assad moral atrocities, it is good and prudent that we work all the angles.

I am not sure if people are tired of war or people around the world are turned off by military solutions. However, I am convinced the president took the right course.

Mathern, D-Fargo, represents District 11 in the North Dakota Senate.
