Reader feedback: Don't blame Bush

Re: Hundreds turn out for peace demonstrationa, By Lukáš Fila, Feb 24 - March 2, Vol 9, No 7

As far as Bush is concerned, the US retaliation for 9/11 is not complete. And I don't blame him if he wants to go "overboard" in protecting American interests - mainly domestic security and the insurance of a safer future against dictators and "renegade regimes."

I didn't vote for Bush, nor would I ever. And Al Gore would have been crying on his mother's apron right now instead of standing up to terrorists. For many years the US has been passive-aggressive about Iraq, and now the push has begun. Iraq needs to have a few policemen on their doorstep for them to even listen to the voice of the world, let alone respect and comply with international law.
