Reader feedback: Standing up for ourselves

Re: "Fico: We had university while US overrun by buffalo, Indians", News Briefs, Vol 8 No 36, Sept 23 to 29

Instead of comparing who did what first and which country is superior to the other, each must accept the fact that every country has their own unique qualities and "claims to fame." I think everyone needs to concentrate on getting the Slovak Republic into the European Union and on the stage with the other "free" countries in the world. Time itself will deal with who is superior in the long run.

With respect to the "war on terror" I think everyone should realize that it is the United States that is targeted by the terrorists, not the Slovak Republic, and to a lesser extent, Great Britain. When the United States is looking at additional attacks, the United Nations, as well as all the other countries of the world, can either assist us preventing the attacks or they can stand aside while we defend ourselves.

I live in Miami, Florida and do NOT want any type of attack to happen here or anywhere else in the United States. If you will not stand up to the dictators who threaten us, simply because of our beliefs, then who will?

The answer is no one will, that is why the United States will protect itself when the United Nations decides that it will not. No one complained when the United States stood up for all the people who were and are oppressed, as recently as 10-15 years ago.
