L.A. City Council calls for U.S. to end Afghanistan, Iraq wars
The Los Angeles City Council called Tuesday for the federal government to end its wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, saying money for those foreign wars should be invested instead in cities and other domestic needs.

The 12 to 1 vote puts the nation’s second-largest city on record in support of any legislation that would pay for the “safe and orderly withdrawal of U.S. troops and contractors,” according to the resolution. That view will now be incorporated into the city’s lobbying strategy in Washington, D.C.
