In response to "Too many lives sacrificed for corporate gain" (March 26, Letters):
I have never read a letter filled with such arrogance! This letter is a slap in the face to our servicemen and -women by saying they died fighting due to corporate interests. The writer also suggests that capturing Osama bin Laden is "the last thing this government wants."
No weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq, but Islamic extremism is rampant. We are in Iraq battling terrorism and helping the Iraqis establish a stable, democratic nation -- one that won't harbor the likes of al-Qaida. As far as bin Laden is concerned, has the writer forgotten the attacks of Sept. 11? America will not rest until he is brought to justice and al-Qaida is obliterated.
Marking the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war, I have noticed much complacency among people toward the war on terrorism. If we continue down this path, we will lose this war. People need to stop pointing fingers, especially at President Bush, and stand behind our nation in the war on terrorism. Freedom is never free, whether ours or that of any other nation.
