    Let Welch hear from you

    I don’t pretend to have a solution to the horrible proxy war being waged in Syria. I’m certain, however, that adding more “manpads” (shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft missiles) will do nothing but make the situation worse and add to the potential these weapons will find their way to be used to bring down civilian aircraft. The president is being pressured on many fronts to sell these weapons.

    I thank Rep. Peter Welch for taking a strong stand against selling these shoulder-fired anti-aircraft weapons.

    Readers can express support for his position by calling Welch at 202-225-4115.
