America needs fixing

Dear Editor:

Be our Gorbachev: Lead the world by example.

Do not become a “war president” as Bob Woodward would have it.

Do not go after Dr. Zawahiri and then the next and next and next.

Leave Afghanistan and Iraq. Break military and CIA/ISI ties with Pakistan. Forget about the Unocal Caspian pipeline that fuels our military involvement in these nations.

Come home.

Build back our foundering infrastructure from bridges to health to education to energy independence. We have been robbed by years of obese war budgets. We need to create jobs and pride at home.

Do not waste our ideals and resources on another hundred-year war.

Mabel Macdonald
