To the editor:

Whatever one may think about whether Saddam Hussein ever was a threat to the US, he certainly is not now (“Over 1,000 Too Many: Residents Want U.S. Troops Home Now,” Park Slope Courier, September 20). American troops in Iraq now serve only one purpose: as targets with “Shoot Me” signs on them. The Libertarian view of the US military is that it should be used only for defense of the American homeland--not for foreign adventurism, not for exporting democracy, not for nation-building, not for expanding the American empire. The troops should be brought home as quickly as possible consistent with a safe withdrawal. A vote for either of the two Demopublican candidates for President is a vote to send more Americans to die for a mistake.
