Letter: Resolutions swamped by heat of war



Mike Ellison has it exactly right in June 27 letter, “Ending surge not enough.” America’s foreign policy should be based on arbitration, mediation, reconciliation. What wonders could have been achieved if the same resources had been put into alleviating poverty, ignorance, and disease (here and elsewhere) as have been spent on war just since the beginning of the Vietnam debacle.

War is the problem, not the solution.
