To the Editor:
Recently, I have noticed a trend among students to have a very anti-war, anti-Bush sentiment. This, I believe, is being formed when they read articles like in Ken Hamner’s Oct. 16 opinion article entitled “Bush a modern-day Caesar.”
I am sorry, but Bush is doing the right thing. Yes, Saddam was recently elected by a margin of 100 percent support. But isn’t that kind of easy when you are the only person on the ballot, and if you vote “no” you will probably be killed or imprisoned?
No we don’t have a government plan to put in place when we topple Saddam in days, but we really haven’t won the war yet, eh?
Also, if America really wants to globalize, shouldn’t we just wait and watch Disney and McDonalds impress American culture everywhere for us. They are already doing a great job, and it would be a lot less messy than military bases. I mean isn’t it nice that we can go to Iran, eat some Kentucky Fried Chicken, drink a Coca Cola and discuss how much cheaper gas is going to be once we have our 51st state in the Middle East?
