Letter: Two-faced Americans
August 05, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

How many civilians did the United States kill when delivering the “Shock and Awe” bombing of Iraq? We learned “collateral damage” meant civilian deaths, and it was unavoidable in the greater goal of stopping evil.

Why now do we criticize the only democracy in the Middle East, when they respond to missile attacks from terrorists and incur collateral damage of some of the human shields? How two-faced can we get? Why do we hold Israel to a higher standard than our own?

About time
He had no choice after congressional inaction
He should have waited for new congressional legislation
Don't like it at all
Prospects for broader action are now eliminated
