FINDS ENGELKE OFFENSIVE - Comments On Iraqi People

(04/02/2003)

Dear Editor,

After reading the Creston news this morning, my appreciation for Mr. Alvin Engelke has gone down considerably. His remarks about Iraq and his obvious dislike of the Iraqi people were, at the least, offensive.

However, I find that many people who feel that we should blow Iraq off the face of the earth, have a tendancy to show the true colors of their ignorance. And in this respect, I would like to thank him and others who are "pro-war".

It is remarks like that which add credence to the beliefs of those of us who do not agree. And so I would like to ask Mr. Englke and all other war supporters one very important question. How many dead women and children would YOU like to take responsibility for?
