Don’t run from enemies

To the editor

Peter Ciavarri’s letter, “No victory plan in Iraq” (June), showed a lack of respect for President Bush. When the President decided to go to Iraq, he had the support of those who criticize him now.

Faulty intelligence not intentional lying was part of the reason we went to Iraq. After Saddam Hussein was gone, we faced and still face the problem of insurgency.

Victory in Iraq is meaningless as the terrorist threat is world wide.

Members of Congress who are pressuring the President for a pullout date encourage the terrorists who sense our lack of resolve.

It should be remembered that our lack of resolve in Vietnam led to genocide in Cambodia and the plight of the Vietnamese boat people.

Let us not make the same mistake twice by running from those who seek to destroy us.

Support our troops who are defending our freedom.
