Re "Yazidi rescue unnecessary, says Pentagon" (Aug. 14): All these poor souls, these Yazidi refugees, trapped on a mountain in Iraq , pursued by the villains of ISIS. How to save them?

How about we evacuate them all to the United States and have them start up the repopulation of Detroit? Their jobs would be to physically rebuild the city, all the federal funding for rebuilding made available by cutting all of our military money to other nations in half.
