Iraq’s Not The Only One!

Iraq's Not The Only One!

Dear Editor;

Although I favor an attack on Iraq if Saddam does not disarm, I think we are singling out Iraq.

We should also take out Iran - that hotbed of Islamic terror. Cut off every penny of aid to Egypt, if for no other reason than people were dancing in the streets on 9-11? Saudi Arabia? Stop importing their oil.

We have enough domestic supplies of oil to be independent for 250 years. But even suggest drilling in frozen parts of Alaska and groups like Greenpeace (funded by generous grants from Saudi Arabia) cry about disturbing a nest of birds or bees.

Both parties, Democrats and Republicans, line their re-election campaigns with oil money. Why don't the liberals call our politicians to task about taking oil money? Senator Ted Kennedy is flat out against an Iraqi invasion. I'm too young to remember but, was Ted also against his brother's actions during the Bay of Pigs invasion (failed) or the Cuban Missile Crisis? I am in no way a war 'monger'. I hate violence, but I would hate a mushroom cloud over New York City even more.

JOHN BRENNI
