Evacuate Our Troops

Dear Editor,

I am writing on behalf of the Buckley family, many of whom reside in the Rockaways.

Recently Marine Lance Cpl. Gregory T. Buckley was cowardly gunned down while unarmed and on duty in Southern Afghanistan. We demand that all our troops be evacuated, totally. Immediately. Not in a prolonged manner which will add to the mortality rate.

Anyone familiar with global history knows that Afghanistan has experienced tribal wars for over eight hundred years. The British army, the Russian troops and the American forces have been killed and maimed all because of very weak reasoning. The first presidential candidate who endorses this view is someone that I hope will be the next President of the United States.

THEODORE A. BUCKLEY
