"Get European allies to help stop insurgency in Iraq" (June 19) made a whole lot of sense. I would suggest going even further.

The European Union, working together, is a powerful force. Isn't it about time that the USA relinquished the role of caretaker of the world and handed it over to the European Union? They could then ask us if we would go along with what political solutions they would have for all of the catastrophies occurring all over the world. Maybe we could even use some of our trillions of dollars we would save to rebuild our country. Sounds good to me.
