Letter hit the "nail on the head"

Thursday, September 21, 2006

Dear Editor:

Well hooray for Ron Anderson's letter to the editor in the Sept. 13 edition. It's about time someone spoke up about our idiocy in Iraq. He has hit the nail right on the head.

President Johnson got 58,000 of our young military people killed in Vietnam and now our current President is getting a bunch of our young military people killed in Iraq. Anyone who knows their history, the Crusades got their butts kicked in the 10 hundreds, the British got their butts kicked in the same area after WWI.

I keep asking people, "What gives us the right to attempt to foist our way of life on the rest of the world?" None has yet to give an answer. I would say more, but if you know your history, it speaks for itself.

Sincerely,

Ted Friesner
