Dear Editor:

President Obama has authorized 30-35,000 more American troops to Afghanistan. For this he gets the Nobel Peace Prize?

Read the words of our president during his run for the presidency: "I will promise you this. If we haven't gotten our troops out [of Afghanistan] by Christmas [of 2007], it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank."

So much for honesty and adhering to the US Constitution!

Maybe America ought to stop lending our sons and daughters to United Nations "peacekeeping missions". Sound like perpetual war for perpetual peace to me. It must be stopped! I say America first.
