Newspaper’s editorial served as a wake-up call on danger of Saddam

Dear Editor:
Thank you for the Jan. 27 editorial titled

War with Iraq the lessor of two evils?

as my wake-up call.
Dear Editor:

Thank you for the Jan. 27 editorial titled “War with Iraq the lessor of two evils?” as my wake-up call.

As a Vietnam veteran who now questions the U.S.’s motives for that flawed effort, I did not support our intrusion into Iraq.

However, the mushroom cloud you mentioned did catch my thoughts and made a lasting impression. A mushroom cloud generated in the expanses of the Middle East would have fall-out in my backyard a week or so later. Do I wish this for myself and love ones? No!

We as a nation need to stop this dictator. Now!
