Mayors pass resolution against wars in Iraq, Afghanistan

This week, we're taking an in-depth look at States in Crisis. Across the country, one thing they seem to have in common is a sea of red ink.

To that end, the U.S. Conference of Mayors is now on record, calling for an early end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They say the money spent on the wars should be put to use at home.

This morning on American Morning, Kiran Chetry speaks with Madison, Wisconsin Mayor Paul Soglin and Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett about their support for the U.S. Conference of Mayors resolution to end the wars.

    Yeah.. like that means a lot.... The Conference of Mayors need to just do better for there cities or counties depending on how large or small that there areas are, for them to call for a end of the war... is just stupid.

    Afghanistan is smaller than Texas. The money we are spending in Afghanistan which is making a difference would not even be noticed in a country as large as the US. This is just more isolationism and second guessing.
