Reader feedback: Concerned Canadian

Re: Parliament refuses to withdraw troops, News shorts, Oct 4 - Oct 10, Vol 10, No 38

I was dismayed and disappointed to learn that the Slovak parliament did not support the proposal for troop withdrawal from Iraq. Each passing day confirms unequivocally that this was the most disastrous foreign policy decision by this misguided administration. The reasons for going to war had not been proven and it is obvious that there never was a plan for the peace, as the situation deteriorates daily. As a concerned Canadian whose roots are Slovak, I can only believe that Slovakia's association with this fiasco will not serve it well.
