Bush puts freedom at risk
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!
