War is a waste

I am a World War II veteran, and along with 61 percent of the American people, I am saying to President Barack Obama, "Stay the hell out of Syria." Military power is not the answer to our problems. How many unnecessary wars does it take to prove that?

Why do we continue to send Israel $3 billion every year to feed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's war machine while millions of American children go to bed hungry every night? The Republicans in the House voted to cut food stamps but to take care of the large corporate farms. Child hunger is only one of the problems the United States has at home. Others include education, infrastructure, housing and health care.

Wars are obsolete and a waste of money and human life, so let's start by ending all foreign military aid without exception.
