I found the following doozy (sp?) in today's letters to the editor at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
- Baffled by support
That the war in Iraq is losing support does not surprise me. What does surprise me is how the support figure stays as high as it does.
I cannot understand how anyone can support a war against a country that had no army of any significance, no navy, no air force, little or no connection to 9/11, had not attacked our country and was not an imminent threat to our security.
Granted, Iraq was brutalized by a ruthless dictator, but if that is the reason for the attack, that should have been the issue debated by the people and the Congress.
Warren Spannaus, Minneapolis
And last time I checked, the war was debated: Congress approved the use of force against Iraq last fall.
