Please, get us out of Afghanistan as quickly as possible; it is an even deeper trap than Iraq. You know better than to attempt with arms to fight terrorism–a tactical strategy, not an enemy per se. As Alice Walker urged in her letter to you after your election, "We must learn actually not to have enemies, but only confused adversaries who are ourselves in disguise." This might be a good time for you to reread that letter. Like many Americans, I support you because I see in you the capability to break from the old ways of viewing the world. Now is the time to exercise that vision. Turn inward: We must get our own house in order. We can afford to ravage other countries no more–both economically and spiritually.Do not lose your way.
