Policing the World

The author of the Opinion page article "A Sustainable US Foreign Policy," June 1, identified as a CIA officer, advocates what amounts to "Pax Americana," i.e., to have the US act as the world's policeman, using military force when necessary, backed by multilateralism. He says that "the candidate that best understands and acts on these popular attitudes will have the best chance to win in November."

What we really need for a safer and better world is peace through world law - realized through a restructured and strengthened UN. Any candidate who shows leadership in that direction will deserve to win on the merits, and will go down in history as a great world leader. Stanley K. Platt, Minneapolis
