President Bush prays for peace every day

Patti Unger

Regarding the resolution (Nevada City Councilman) Steve Cottrell wanted to send to the President: Steve, if you knew anything about President Bush, you would know this honorable man prays for peace every day! The thought of war weighs heavy on him and he is using the highest level of restraint against going to war.

The problem is, what does Saddam Hussein want? Look at the record of Hussein, the atrocities he performs on the people of Iraq. The men and women he beheads in the streets of Iraq also wanted peace. How can anyone turn his back on the holocaust going on under the rule of Hussein?

Is it all right with you if we feed the needy and turn our backs on the brutal torture of thousands? I propose that we send President Bush a resolution stating the people of Nevada City stand proud in the support of the president and our military. If the people of Iraq could speak without being put to death, they would say thank you!

P.S.: My father died today; he was a World War II submarine vet. If you had asked him if he would have fought again, his answer would be, yes, and God bless America.
