Letters to the Editor

Go sit on a cactus -- sir

President Bush is now comparing Iraq with Vietnam. Whenever he gives a speech, he makes sure it is to a military group like the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars. I belong to both and I get sick to my stomach when they all get up and clap for him. Half of those American Legion guys never fired a shot and they all get up there with their little caps on and clap for that lying person.

The president has the guts to get up before a military audience and try to compare Iraq to Vietnam? If he had not lied, we would not be in Iraq and more than 3,700 of our men and women would be alive today. Mr. Bush, go back to your ranch and sit on some cactus bushes.
