AN open let­ter to Warn­bro MLA Paul Pa­palia:

I thought that you had more sense than to back HMAS Stirling as a naval fa­cil­ity for US use and nu­clear ca­pa­bil­i­ties. You have lost my vote. The US mil­i­tary and mil­i­tary in­dus­trial com­plex are the back­bone to the US econ­omy th­ese days, so it is vi­tal for them to be push­ing for con­tin­ual wars around our globe.

How­ever none of the wars they gen­er­ate are ever on their con­ti­nent. If they want wars, their peo­ple should face the con­se­quences.

For sev­eral years, the US ap­pears to have been push­ing, first Rus­sia and now China into a con­fronta­tion, but well away from main­land US. If th­ese two na­tions are left alone to trade peace­fully, there is no risk of global con­fla­gra­tion.

If the US is told to leave our coun­try and to leave us to our own des­tiny, we will be more se­cure from any con­flict. MAL­COLM HUGHES, Waikiki
