High-tech projects provide real stimulus I can't disagree with Lawrence J. Korb and Matthew Merighi's suggestions about the need for defense spending on personnel, construction and basic needs such as trucks and Humvees - those programs are all critical ("Defense spending as stimulus," Commentary, Feb. 8). But their simplistic characterization of the Air Force's F-22 and other revolutionary and state-of-the-art high-tech weapons projects as "unnecessary" misses the big picture. This country fell for the same sort of shortsighted thinking at the end of World War I, and it left us with our pants down, dependent on dilapidated, obsolete technology the day the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor.

WASHINGTON -- Two military researchers gave valuable support yesterday to top Democrats on the Senate Armed Services Committee who believe that homosexuals should remain in the military only if they stay in the closet.The researchers, including the civilian chief of military psychiatry the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, told the committee that homosexuals who do not openly acknowledge their sexual orientation pose no threat to the shared sense of "family" that makes an infantry platoon, aviation squadron or other military unit a cohesive, effective fighting force.

WASHINGTON -- The military draft should be resumed immediately if President Bush orders U.S. forces to drive Iraq from Kuwait, a former top Pentagon manpower official told Congress yesterday.Two senior Democratic senators -- Sam Nunn of Georgia and John Glenn of Ohio -- agreed. They warned that conscription might be necessary even if the United States refrained from war and decided instead to maintain a large military presence in Saudi Arabia while waiting for sanctions to force Iraq to retreat.

Children are taught to hate and fightIt would appear from the tragic demise of Lawrence Hoyer while trying to break up a student fight that our children have been too carefully taught to hate and to use violence to solve grievances.To combat the lessons learned from TV violence would take an enormous effort. What is needed are programs to educate parents and teachers about conflict resolution, in order for them to teach children to solve their differences in peaceable ways, beginning at very early ages and continuing throughout secondary education.

Jonathan Pollard should stay in jail for the sake of deterrence ("It's time to free Jonathan Pollard," Nov. 3). Lawrence Korb, in his arguments for clemency, neglects to mention that Mr. Pollard's spying for our "ally" Israel was hardly an aberration or an isolated event. Whether through transfer of secure information to government officials friendly to Israel or, most recently, by cyber warfare, Israel has demonstrated a hostile intent toward its closest ally and benefactor. Also, Mr. Korb's claim that prosecutors violated a plea agreement with Mr. Pollard during sentencing is wrong.
