The hawks, who are always pushing for war, should take note of 38-year-old Robert Bales and the tragedy in Afghanistan. Enough is enough! This young man is somebody’s son, husband and father. Like all our service men and women, they are not “cannon fodder.” These hawks, who are always ginning up a new war because war is profitable for some, are not the ones going into combat. However this unfortunate situation turns out, this young soldier is now the poster boy for enough of war and more attention to mental health. This 1 percent of the population military is keeping the 1 percent rich, richer. This inequality has to stop. CAROL WALLGREN, Auburn
