Dear David Cameron, This is my beautiful daughter, she is almost three years old. I'm sitting tonight watching you debate the prospect of bombing Syria. You claim that it is to protect every man woman and child in this country from extremist.

Shared and noted. Thanks, Elias. Suspect that millions of people around the world harbor the same sentiment as this young mother. Wish our leaders would get a clue!

These planes full of bombs strike terror everywhere they go and are immensley more effective and just as ineffective as individual terrorists who they help to recruit in a similar law of grief and revenge.

She's right ...

War is no way of ending war.

An honest, correct, & well written letter.

The people of Scotland do Not endorse the bombing of Syria in any way, Mr PM (twat) just wants to play in the playground with the bigger boys.
Thanks for posting.

Thank you for sharing. I'm sure mothers everywhere will relate to this letter. War is not the answer, and never has been.

Thank you all your comments. I don't know why politicians think that war is going to make them safe. War just breeds violence.

Glad to see this. Seems most all of us agree that Peace Builds, War Destroys.

stop war.....just follow the money trail....who really gains the most from warfare? The folks that make the bombs, the folks who sew the uniforms, the ones who supply food for troops, the ones who supply medical equipment, the's complicated. War is good business for everyone who doesn't have a child who is sent to fight, a child who has the bad luck to get hit by shrapnel, or one who loses their parents...etc.

They are growing up in a world where there is lots of hate .She is right, but we didn't ask Muslims to try to eliminate us because they hate us, we have to fight back.

Yes I agree , peace would be the most beautiful thing. But 90 % of all the comments here are from Care 2
members from the USA. You are pretty far away from all and you do not have the refugees we have now from Africa and Near East. Pls. consider that the real problem started with the Irak war .
Pls. let the goverments of the EU known how to stop the ISS. I doubt that the news from the Syria problem
really are going through the US news, there are lots of little children suffering and scared to be taken away from there homes.
this is not a cold war, in the last 7 days there are a couple of EU countries with arrest of terrorist and this is
to be scared everywhere, it can be a Metro, Train, Avion or Museo where there are assaults
I am scared that praying is not enough.

Sorry Elias. Anyone who believes this letter from a well meaning Scottish mum is going to protect them from radical Islamic maniacs is going to be very disappointed.
