Time to end misguided foreign wars
First I saw the headline detailing a strike on a military base ("5 U.S. soldiers killed in strike on Baghdad base," June 7) and then on the following page a warning that a decade-long conflict may needed to be extended ("Gates: Afghan job not done"). What a juxtaposition for two foreign policy disasters: Soldiers are still dying in Iraq, and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates thinks it is wise to continue the longest war in U.S. history.
