Reader feedback: Proud American

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

As an American of Slovak heritage, I am very proud of the fact that you have sent a helping hand to Iraq. I am not sure if we did the correct thing by going into Iraq, but I know that if we had done more in the United States concerning the Munich agreement in the 1930s, possibly a great injustice would not have happened. Again I thank you.
