Louchery has a letter to the editor in the News-Leader that defies comprehension. It's almost as if a White House flack had taken control of her hands and forced them to bang out all of Dick Cheney's darkest fantasies. Lookit:
I'm tired of President Bush having to justify the Iraq war to the media. The loss of lives is sad. The last count I heard was just at 2,000 — far short of the millions lost in the first and second World Wars, both here and abroad.
There was much sadness over the loss of life at the towers on 9/11, but what if we had bombings daily like other countries do?
Saddam Hussein had a driving force to take over the world, as Hitler did. Hussein claimed to be King Nebuchadnezzar reincarnated. Like Hitler, he had to be stopped.
Why can't people see that our president is trying to keep terrorism and war out of our country?
The death toll in the first and second World Wars was in the millions and millions, and the loss of property a staggering amount. Did our military men all die in vain? (I think not, we are still free.) People, please be proud of your family members that gave their lives for our freedom in all the wars that have been fought. It was a great sacrifice on their part. Let us be proud of them and honor them forever. Don't dishonor them by suggesting they died in vain.
