Mr. Barack Obama, President of the United States
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Blvd. NW
Washington, D. C. 20500

Dear Mr. President:

It is with tremendous interest that I watch you struggle with the Syrian gas situation.  I know you are grasping for Gandhian answers.  Allow me to suggest that you place your energies behind the development of Mahatma Gandhi's "peace brigade" concept.

The peace brigades are made up, in Gandhiji's mind, of people dressed in white (as an identifier), non-drinkers of alcohol (to ensure a clear head at all times), etc., and they are trained in the ways of Truth and non-violence.  They stand as physical and moral barriers between warring factions, a human wall respected by the very nature for their objectivity in focusing on the best outcomes for all involved in a dispute.

To be credible, the peace brigade members would have to have autonomy from governments, including the United Nations, so that they could not be seen as political operatives on behalf of any interest other than Truth Only, who is God.  I think Arun Gandhi, here in America, and a Dr. Kumar from India, would provide you insights on how best to proceed.

Most respectfully,

Gene Chapman

P. S.  I am informed by a contact in India that a living peace brigade member of Mahatma Gandhi's has much to tell, if you are interested.
