Your opinion piece in the Sunday edition of your paper makes many of the same assumptions that most of the Bush apologists make. That is that the American people will just continue to send our sons and daughters as sacrificial fodder to a failed foreign policy and an unjustified war.
Iraq did not attack us and the terrorists who did attack us were not Iraqis, but Saudis. By going in as we did, unilaterally, we have created a hotbed of terrorism where none existed before. Democratic governments do not start from the top down or with invasions by other countries, but from the bottom up. If Bush were so intent on creating democracy in the Middle East, why didn't he invade Saudi Arabia, from which all of the September 11 terrorists came and which is not ruled democratically.
I will always support my son and all of the troops who are fighting this war because I love them. But my strongest support will come when I do my patriotic duty and vote against the Bush administration and hope for a changed foreign policy, lest we invade yet another country. Dissent is a patriotic duty.
