Prime minister’s folly

Thanks for Gwynne Dyer’s timely analysis of the race for Arctic resources in your Aug. 10 issue.

The war mongering approach which comes out of the prime minister’s office is immature saber rattling when he wants to send troops to guard our interests,

Negotiating is the only way in this day and age. Gwynne Dyer’s analysis of the situation makes it very clear that all nations are ready to negotiate in a rational way,

How can our prime minister even think of sending young men and women anywhere to fight in this day and age. I am a veteran of the Second World War and I plead for peaceful negotiations.
