Letters to the editor

continued from page 2

In the United States, practically every new law, even reconsideration of existing laws, involves a major struggle between our two political parties. Both groups of people are, by and large, from the same culture with similar religious beliefs. Now try to imagine the possibility of developing an acceptable global law, for which it would be necessary to obtain agreement from (at least) all of the most powerful countries in the world. We already have seen the result of one attempt, the United Nations, and it’s not even close.

Mr. Woolery categorizes his opponents as backing “war at any price.” He fails to recognize that peace at any price can be even more costly.
