The Iraq War
By Ken Levy
March 08, 2007
In response to Mr. Kline's letter about Al Gore ,let me remind
him that when Bill Clinton left office in January of 2000 his
approval rating as President with the American people was at
I'm not saying he was perfect. His personal life with Monica
was not a good thing. But his work as President of the United
States was outstanding. He knew policy in the Middle East well.
He knew that an invasion of Baghdad without reason and without
a plan was wrong.
George Walker Bush is sitting with an approval rating at 30%
as of this morning.Why? Well to start with he lied to the American
people about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. He was
told by many who had turned over every rock in that country that
they were not a threat and yet he used his power not to have
a personal affair but to take America to War.
That War has cost America over 3,100 deaths so far and thousands
coming home with no legs , no arms ,and head injuries that will
linger for years. Our troops are not being treated well as they
return, now we have the scandal of Walter Reed Hospital going
And the cost in monies, over a trillion dollars spent so far.
Our kids will be paying off this debt for years.
And let us not forget about the people sitting in Love Canal
in New Orleans waiting for FEMA to help them rebuild their broken
Months of broken promises by
the Bush administration.
A real mess awaits the next President, whomever it will be. Left
by a man who will go down in history as the worst President this
country has ever had.
I love my country ,I'm very sad that we have a leader that has
taken us in the wrong direction in every way possible. The cost
of his failures will be felt by our kids for years to come.
