Others should follow council lead

This is to express my gratitude and support for the very reasonable resolution the Berkeley City Council recently passed regarding Afghanistan. I can't understand why anyone would object to a simple request to seek lawful ways to bring the perpetrators to justice without bombing innocent civilians, or unnecessarily risking the lives of American military personnel. 

If other city councils – and elected officials in counties, states, and Congress – would follow the courageous and wise example of the Berkeley City Council, the benefits to the country and the planet would be incalculable.
