Letter about recent letters

I'm writing in response to many of the letters in the April 5th edition of the Fillmore County Journal. I just want to make a few things clear there was not a single article or letter I read that could be considered as an attack on Christians. If anything, these letters being referred to are urging Christians to be accepting and understanding and not divisive and reproachful toward fellow man as so many people are being across the country. They are letters from people that don't feel they are "holier than thou." They, like myself, think we need to work together as a society to unite our nation regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or age against ideas that want to divide us and deny people rights by twisting the intent of our founding fathers, using the literal word of the Bible, and attempting to pass radical legislation.

Regarding Mr. Eastvold's letter referring to WWII and Hitler. How is it that a comparison of Iraq and its uncertain future to the Vietnam War is unfair while comparing this war to that of World War II is reasonable? I'd like to say that, in my eyes, Andy Wolter's article was not denying that we need to protect our nation, end genocide in the world, and stop aggressive regimes that intend to destroy their people. The majority of his article focused on the idea that maybe we should start solving problems before we allow them to get to a point that requires war.

The Gulf War was fought, at least we're taught so in our education system, because an ally of the United States, Kuwait, was invaded by a neighboring nation. We responded by driving Iraqi forces out of Kuwait and far into Iraq. This war, however, was launched on the idea that Saddam Hussein was creating weapons of mass destruction and, according to our Secretary of Defense, we knew right where they were. We haven't found those weapons. The war was launched because we had proof that Iraq was buying dangerous materials from Niger that was false. It was launched because Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda were connected and Saddam could have even been responsible for helping with the 9/11 attacks. That has also been proved false.

Was getting rid of Saddam Hussein a favor to the world? Undeniably so. Were the methods we used to get to that point just? That is very questionable. Now, with Saddam gone, we face a new rebel enemy in Iraq that has take .....
