While there is a moral imperative to do something to aid the people of Syria, one also must ask what we hope to achieve by a limited strike that will result in death and devastation for many Syrians. Will we be hailed as saviors? No. Will we bring about peace by demonstrating our military superiority? No. Will we change people's minds? No. Will we in any way advance peace in the Mideast? No. I admire President Barack Obama for all that he has done, but he drew a line in the sand that he shouldn't have.

When my children were growing up, they were very selfish, and they demanded a lot of attention. They learned the word "mine" and then proceeded to use it to describe everything that they could see. They used to push and hit and stomp their feet over and over again while I patiently taught them how to share and not to hit. I taught them that violence was never an answer and that the best way to solve a problem was to talk about it and find a way to...

In response to Jonathan Pitts ' excellent article ("Shadow over a holy time," Sept. 4) on the perilous position of Israel, and the entire Middle East, I invite all people of good will to join me in our fervent hope that there will be peace in every heart, and in every home, and in every nation.

There is noise all around Elvis Dumervil. Terrell Suggs is singing to no one in particular. Lardarius Webb is playfully yelling at a teammate. The sound of a whistle followed by the boom of a coach's voice is heard from an adjacent field. About 50 players are spread out over two fields when the Ravens' newest defensive star walks out of the team facility, stops on the edge of the turf, takes a knee and bows his head in prayer. "I think this year more than anything, I'm at ease," Dumervil said.

Secretary of State John Kerry has accomplished what many Middle East experts felt was not possible. As a result of his hard work and skill, Israelis and Palestinians are scheduled to resume negotiations on resolving their decades-long conflict in Jerusalem Wednesday. It is not surprising that Mr. Kerry has given the Israeli-Palestinian conflict a high priority. Like all of his recent predecessors as secretary of state, as well as past national security advisers, Mr. Kerry understands what most Americans do not - that ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is of great importance to U.S. national security.

One can only applaud the restarting of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, which controls the West Bank. Yet, given the other problems the United States currently faces in the Middle East - crises in Egypt, Syria and Iraq, to mention only the most obvious ones - it is an open question as to whether Secretary of State John Kerry should have spent so much time on Israel-Palestinian peace talks, having visited the area no fewer than...

The uplifting sounds of gospel music provide Ravens rookie inside linebacker Arthur Brown a release from the grind of football. The second-round draft pick from Kansas State is bespectacled and soft-spoken, cultivating a professorial look off the field as he frequently wears a tie, slacks and dress shoes. During his spare time, the 23-year-old can be found playing the piano or whipping up his favorite meal of salmon and sweet potatoes. Brown's personality away from the game, though, is a contrast to his aggressive nature on the field.

Regarding your editorial on the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the emphasis on "peace" may be a misnomer in this conflict (" Israeli-Palestinian talks merit guarded pessimism," July 31). These negotiations are not, and never have been, about peace. Israel has enjoyed relative peace since its inception. The wars it has been involved in have been of its own making. Granted, there have been some Israelis killed by Palestinians - and many, many more Palestinians killed by Israelis.

Secretary of State John Kerry still has a long way to go in his intensive quest for Palestinian-Israeli peace. But his diligent and persuasive pursuit of it suggests that his uneven career search for a legacy of his own may finally have found its proper track. The decorated Vietnam War veteran who first won prominence as a vocal critic of that war went on to be a U.S. senator from Massachusetts and in 2004 the Democratic presidential nominee. But he was denied the presidency in a brutal political smearing of that honored service as a Navy swift boat commander.

For Israel the peace talks offer little hope ( "Israeli-Palestinian talks merit guarded pessimism," July 31). The U.S. is putting pressure on Israel for concessions even prior to serious negotiations, without demanding anything in return from the Palestinians. The absurdity and the one-sidedness of the so-called peace negotiations can be shown by Israel having to release first, without any reciprocity from the Palestinian negotiators, 104 Palestinian murderers of women, children and babies.
