Opinion - The Clarion-Ledger

After reading the normal Jerks in the Letters to the Editor page, i had to write myself:

After reading Jimmy Reed’s letter to the editor (7/17/03), I had to comment. The pretense that he and others like him carry is that if you do not agree with or believe in anything the President tells you, then you must be against America. Such blinders betray the very blood spilled by our forefathers. Americans have died for the right to question our government and if Mr. Reed does not like such democracy, he should seek out a nation that follows his own beliefs.

Furthermore, our President claimed to this nation, to the united nations, and to the world that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction. We were told that the administration knew exactly where the WMD were and that we were at risk of an imminent attack. These were the reasons to justify our occupation of Iraq. If our men and women that died in a war built on lies, the President better explain himself or he better resign. People compare the Bush lies to the Clinton lies. I challenge you to tell the families of dead American soldiers that its just the same. Our President’s mendacity sickens me. We all deserve better than this.
