This won’t fly in Aspen

Dear Editor:

If we are getting out of Afghanistan, we don’t need to practice over Aspen to bomb it. Who needs any escalation of the war effort?

Being a pilot for over 35 years, I’ve never seen the military give up a practice area. But maybe it would be a good thing for Americans who support the war effort to imagine the terror of these low-flying gun-ships.

Are they about to bomb, burn, maim and kill us as they fly overhead? It’s about time we said “no” to the military industrial complex that this is just another part of.
