Should we be spend­ing tax dol­lars on bombs?

The Dundalk Eagle - - BY THE PEOPLE -

The av­er­age pub­lic state col­lege tu­ition for the 2017-2018 school year is ap­prox­i­mately $9,970.

On April 9, 2018, the United States, Great Bri­tain and France launched an at­tack on Syria in re­tal­i­a­tion for a chem­i­cal weapons at­tack on civil­ians that all ev­i­dence in­di­cates never hap­pened. The U.S. alone launched 85 mis­siles and bombs that in to­tal cost ap­prox­i­mately $139,570,000, not count­ing the air­craft, ships, fuel, per­son­nel, etc. to de­liver them. This equates to 13,999 years of state col­lege ed­u­ca­tion.

It is un­con­scionable and out­ra­geous to spend tax dol­lars on bombs and at­tacks on sov­er­eign na­tions as stu­dents drown in debt try­ing to se­cure a col­lege de­gree and vet­er­ans lie home­less on our streets. Keep the taxes at home and use them to the ben­e­fit so­ci­ety and the hu­man race in­stead of for killing in­no­cent men, women and chil­dren. Richard C. Shel­ley Besse­mer Av­enue
