Reader feedback: Fresh Slovak troops arrive in Iraq

Re: Fresh Slovak troops arrive in Iraq, Flash News Briefs, July 12-18, Vol 10, No 27

What is Slovakia doing in Iraq? This is Bush and Rumsfeld's war and they should get out of it just like they entered: by themselves. Europe has nothing to do in Iraq: it is not our war and Saddam was not our enemy. Thanks to people like Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, the world is a more dangerous place today than it was 18 months ago. Slovakia should not get involved in Iraq, but Mr Bush's money makes miracles happen. You'll regret it some day, you'll see.
