Re “Changing View: Returning guardsman questions U.S. tactics in Iraq war” (May 10):

In the beginning, millions of liberal, progressive, activists around the world tried to tell the U.S. administration that what they were doing would lead to this. People in the streets were arrested because of these views.

We attacked Iraq who had not attacked us, and now look what position we are in. We have lost our credibility with the world and there is terrorism around the world trying to stop us from overthrowing their governments. The “progressives” had foresight, not hindsight.
