my latest letter to the editor

Calls for Bush impeachment
I continually hear our leaders and media pundits say we are fighting the terrorists over there so we don't have to fight them here.
Before we started this war Iraq had no terrorist groups. It's true they had a brutal dictator who we armed and supported in the 1980s. Who can forget the picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam in 1983?
In President Bush's latest speech he made several references to 9/11 as if that was the justification for our attack, invasion and occupation of Iraq. Bush himself has said "we have no evidence Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11."
Iraq never threatened us, our allies, or any of their neighbors. No WMDs have been found.
Now the Downing Street memos show the intelligence was fixed to fit the policy. They wanted to invade Iraq and lied to Congress and the American people to justify it.
There should be an immediate inquiry and move to impeach. What has been done in our name is criminal. All responsible should be held accountable.
We should begin immediate withdrawal and reparations. How arrogant and inhumane suggesting the people of Iraq should host a war so we don't have to "fight them here." jpeg
