Insists Washington stop going to war

To the Editor:

Our country desperately needs young politicians like Sen. Chris Murphy to save us from decades of debilitating, suicidal warfare.

We’ve been fighting an unending series of Mideast wars, sacrificing our national strength — manpower and finances — and ignoring our vital domestic problems of rebuilding our industry and jobs.

How long must we fight to save Israel? Hillary Clinton promised “dire consequences” if North Korea launched their  space rocket. The rocket was launched and dire consequences were forgotten.

President Obama “drew a red line” against Syria using gas. Now, we are told, we must bomb Syria because we have “proof” it was used against their people. I’m certain gas was used, but I would like some proof that Syria used it. (I suspect a bit of foul play.)

My wife and I held a conference and decided President Obama should make a public statement to say, “The majority of people in the United States do not want to become further involved bombing another country and killing more innocent people, and as their president I must abide by their wishes.”

What will our friends and enemies think? What do we think of our friends and enemies?

They will probably laugh and wonder when our president and Congress starting taking smart pills. Washington must stop the industrial military interests from creating endless wars.

It’s time to listen to the public, to understand what the people want? It’s time our government pay attention to the needs of the public. It’s time our well paid government begin working on our nation’s domestic problems.
