Let's give Iraqis homes, tools, villages and hope.

This essay by guest columnist Mike Marcellino appeared in the Feb. 15 issue of the Bedford Sun Banner. Mike served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. The article is not yet online, but here are three quotes, followed by a scanned copy of the newspaper column.

(It is...)
"Time to find an end.
Time to stop killing to save them."

"We should just pull out of the sectarian battles in Baghdad and other big cities (and) go to the villages and towns where some people still like us. Give (them) tools, materials, advice (and) jobs to rebuild (their) towns and a better life."

"Let the Iraqi war lords solve their own problems."
