Finding solutions in Iraq war

This is a response to Lee Brant’s letter to the editor, published July 10.

Mr. Brant “hears and sees a lot of negativity about the war.” I say, it’s about time!!! He “bets that many of our soldiers are fairly bent to see so many Americans spending so much energy expressing their disapproval of this war.” He would “like to see a positive solution with every one of those anti-war bumper stickers or comments from politicians.”

I worry about our soldiers, too. I loathe hearing about injured soldiers being dumped into filthy military hospital wards and soldiers routinely forced to remain long past their scheduled tours of duty. If I were a soldier, that would be far more demoralizing than knowing there were people wanting to end the war and get me out of there because they didn’t believe it was “a worthwhile process.”

I never supported this nasty repeat of Vietnam. “Don’t go in!” was my positive solution five years ago. Now, my best solution is to get out of Iraq and impeach Bush and Cheney, immediately.

Mr. Brant concludes, “Having an opinion is one of this country’s fine attributes, but running one’s mouth without a good solution isn’t.” I suggest he talk to President Bush (not me) about that!
