Re “The Challenges After Mosul” (editorial, July 12):
The Iraq war has left millions of civilians displaced and without food. Farming and food production are always a casualty of war. For peace and reconstruction we must provide emergency food aid and agricultural rehabilitation. We must be the leader in this recovery effort.
That is why President Trump’s proposed elimination of the Food for Peace program is ill advised. We need to be increasing our food aid budgets to help feed war victims in Iraq and elsewhere.
