Bush puts freedom at risk

| Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2007

To the Editor:

I am a proud veteran of World War II and I write this article on behalf of all the veterans of World War II, Vietnam, Korea and Iraq, who risked their lives to maintain the freedom of this great country.

It is sad to see everything we fought for being destroyed, not by any enemy other than our own bad administration.

I admire each and every man and woman serving our country today, and I fear for the lives of those in Iraq, a country that does not want our troops there. A country that never was nor could ever be a threat to America or the world, as President Bush cowardly stated.

Bush is more of a threat. He lied and agitated and dragged us into this costly, deadly, brutal, endless war. He finally admits to his stupid mistakes and continues to make more.

To send 20,000 more troops in harm's way would be a major mistake. He uses troops as though they were nothing more than ammunition. He seems to forget that they are human beings, someone's loved ones.

To shorten this war, I suggest that Bush should send sharpshooter Cheney to Iraq and withdraw our troops for their safety of a stray Cheney bullet.

This country had 40 presidents who steered us in the right direction. We unfortunately are now suffering, and we are victims of a bad administration. We are being misled by what I feel is a dictator, and I might add a terrorist. Three more years of Bush and the Bush war will cause vast devastation and mass destruction. It is time for a Bush impeachment or we will all go down the drain!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
