letter to the editor:

US should give up playing policeman

While the use of chemical weapons is terrible, why is it OK to kill 45,000 Iraqis or an unknown number of Afghanis? And that’s not counting over 5,000 U.S. soldiers killed and 35,000 wounded. The United States should get over being the international policeman. Unless perhaps the defense industries are lobbying Congress to get us into another war.
