Opposes Attacking Iraq

Opposes Attacking Iraq

Dear Editor;

I would like to respond to a letter written by Mr. Daniel Allen in last week's Wave. Mr. Allen took exception to the fact that many of his neighbors signed a letter opposing the invasion of Iraq. Mr. Allen states that: "there is no way for us to tell that Iraq had no connection in the events of September 11." That means there is no proof that they had a connection. We have no proof that Mexico or China had anything to do with 9/11. Should we invade them? Mr. Allen wrote about terrorists in 1942. At that time the US, a sovereign nation, was attacked without provocation by Japan. Isn't that what we are about to do to Iraq?

I have not been convinced by anything President Bush has showed us to date that prove to me that the US is in imminent danger of being attacked by Iraq. It is wrong to attack a country and kill it's citizens because you are afraid of what they might do. I look at Saddam Hussein the way I look at a skunk. It is not wise to kick a skunk. Do you think if we invade a Muslim country without provocation terrorist attacks will decrease? I think they will increase. We can agree to disagree but I would like to make what I believe to be a very important point. It is not unpatriotic or un-American to be against invading Iraq.
