This letter is in response to Ryan Chapman's article on Wednesday and pretty much all of his articles printed in the Collegian. Mr. Chapman, how do you expect the diverse peoples of Iraq to get along if you spread hate and distrust of millions of Americans (or half the voting public) each and every week? How can we convince Iraqis that we want to bring freedom to their country if you want to deny Americans like Cindy Sheehan her most basic constitutional rights just because she disagrees with you? To spread freedom and democracy to other countries, Americans need to lead by example and you certainly aren't helping the cause. What do you believe we're fighting for in Iraq anyway? You claim to support our troops and their mission in the Middle East, but the content of your articles sure don't present a very convincing case.
