Charlottesville calls for end to U.S. foreign wars

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Charlottesville's City Council is calling on the White House and Congress to end foreign wars.

A resolution approved Tuesday night by the council also asks that the U.S. refrain from any new military action in Iran.

The Daily Progress reports that Councilor Kathy Galvin abstained from voting after amendments she proposed were disregarded. Galvin had sought to delete references to Iran and to revise the wording to make it clear that the council supports U.S. troops and the office of the president.

Galvin says her changes would have strengthened the resolution.
