NYTimes Letter Watch

Today's installment: One I agree with!

Responding to a writer from last week, this letter points out that every now and then, war does "solve" problems; one example -- and perhaps the easiest -- is the "problem" of Nazi Germany and a militaristic Japan that was "solved" by WWII.

Just to be clear about my stance: war is to be avoided as much as possible; it is only the last resort. The fact remains, though, that sometimes, the last resort is the only option left.
