Letter to the Editor
Bush and the Republicans keep saying that “we have to fight them over there because if we withdraw they will follow us over here”. That’s as much of a lie as the lies that got us into this occupation in the first place. The truth is that being over there has absolutely nothing to do with them coming over here at all. All we are doing is wasting our resources, killing our troops for no reason while we sit in the middle of an Iraqi civil war. We are more at risk staying there than bringing the troops home because if we are attacked here our troops are over there and there’s no one to defend the homeland.
