Letter to the editor: End the endless war

Posted
After 20 years in Afghanistan, it is time for the United States to acknowledge that peace and security can never be achieved through military force. As a grandmother, I don’t want to see my grandchildren being sent off to any future war.
One of the most important lessons we can learn from our failure in Afghanistan is the importance of Congress reasserting its authority to decide if and when to go to war.
Thank you to Representative Ed Perlmutter for co-sponsoring and voting for HB 256 to repeal the 2002 Iraq Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF). I also thank Senator Michael Bennet and Senator John Hickenlooper for co-sponsoring SJ Res 10 to repeal the 2002 Iraq AUMF. I ask them to urge Senate leadership to bring it immediately to the floor for a vote. This legislation is a bold first step in stopping endless wars.
Marcia Charlton,
