Communicate, Not Fight

I do not think Americans should go hungry to pay for the war in the Middle East. We not only need to satiate our hunger for food, we also need food for thought,ideas. The way to share ideas is to put down our guns and communicate freely. You'll find that the ability to reason and discuss ideas is basically free. All you need to do is put down your guns and talk. This is how we'll find peace in the Middle East. I'm sure we have something useful to share, as do they. But it's pretty hard to talk when the warring factions are firing weapons at one another.
